We had a great time sprucing up Joni’s yard this weekend. Thanks to everyone who made it out!

The Table Blessing – Saturday, April 16, 2011

This week The Table is not meeting for a worship gathering, because this is our Blessing weekend. Our Blessing weekends are designated times for us to live out our rhythm of Blessing, where we as individuals and a community serve folks in tangible ways. This Saturday we are blessing a senior named Joni. She is involved in the Whatcom Volunteer Center’s CHORE program. We’ll meet at her place at 10am and work in her yard. She lives north of Bellingham.  Please come dressed for yard work, and bring hand tools (like rakes, brooms, etc.), a weed eater if you have one, and work gloves.

We will plan on hanging at John and Kalene’s afterward for lunch. So bring some cash or something to contribute. Email The Table if you need information. Feel free to just come and hang out if you can’t make it to Joni’s place.

Next week is Holy Week. The Table is hosting a Good Friday service on April 22 at 7pm, at the Fairhaven Library. We will be joining Mosaic’s Easter celebration on April 24. Stay tuned for details.

Remember…

Remember, we are invited to approach our faith like a child. “He said to them, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children. 15 I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.” 16 Then he took the children in his arms and placed his hands on their heads and blessed them” (Mark 10:14-16).

So, delight in Him and His creation. Be free. Move toward love. Accept His grace freely. Pass on joy. And may you run in freedom this week, knowing He loves you and is well pleased with you!

The Table Worship – Sunday, April 10, 2011

This Sunday, The Table is again gathering for worship at the Fairhaven Library at 5:30pm. We’ll start, as always with a meal. This week is a good ol’ fashion potluck. Bring whatever you want to share, including dessert (very important). We’ll be looking at Mark 10:1-16 if you want to read ahead. For meditation: think about what a child’s faith looks like, how you’d describe it, and what you can gain from such a faith. Feel free to invite a friend along. We’d love it! Also, if you know of someone who needs a meal, let us know. See you Sunday!

Table Worship – Sunday, April 3, 2011

We  truly had fun as we worshiped together last week. Our discussion was seeped in authenticity and goodness. Thanks!

This Sunday at 5:30pm we are gathering again gathering for worship at the Fairhaven Library. For food this week, we’ve got a pasta theme. So feel free to bring some pasta or something to go with it. We’ll be look at Mark 9:30-50, if you want to read ahead. Feel free to bring a friend/neighbor along.

Also if you know of someone or family who needs a meal (because of sickness, baby, economics, whatever), let us know. We still have a fresh stock for just that purpose. Hope to see you Sunday!

Just for Fun

Film at The Firehouse this Thursday!

The Table is sponsoring a film series at The Firehouse Performing Arts Center. This Thursday is the final film of the series, The Man Who Knew Too Little, a classic Bill Murray comedy. Show starts at 7pm, for a mere $5. Should be pretty awesome.

The hope is that with the success of this film series, the Firehouse will make film a regular feature throughout the rainy season. Picture it, film at the Fairhaven Village Green in the summer, and film at the Firehouse the rest of the year. Could be a cool scene. So, come out and support this worthy effort. Hope to see you Thursday!
