Last year, Faith Talk in Lent was one of our most popular faith development offerings, six weeks of meeting around the dinner table for caring conversation and a chance to explore ‘God-talk’ together.
This is a cross+generational event, and we welcome people of all ages. The conversations are most likely to be engaging for people 3rd grade through adult, but younger children are welcome to attend with their families.
A simple dinner will be served each week. We invite you to arrive anytime 5:45 – 6 pm to get your meal and join us around the tables. At 6 pm, our pastor will introduce the topic for the evening. From about 6:15 – 7 pm, there will be time to engage the topic in large group and small group conversation.
This year’s series is themed around ‘Strange Churchy Things.’ Each week we’ll discuss something that’s a part of Christian faith and practice – but probably strikes you as weird if you take a minute to think about it. Our preliminary topic list is: anointing, sabbath, prayer, testimony, tithing, and sacraments. Any question about these topics is fair game!
Your reservation on SignupGenius will help us plan for dinner. Follow this link to register: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0d48aea72ea64-faith
We are also looking for people to share a meal component each week. If you can provide a main course, side, dessert, or beverages (once or more than once), please let us know when you sign up.
*We have had several people ask whether they could just come to the program (because they were not interested in dinner). So much of Jesus’ ministry was organized around table fellowship, and the Heavenly Banquet is an important metaphor for the realm of God. We’ve chosen to intertwine meal and teaching. If you have dietary restrictions that make it awkward or uncomfortable for you to share a meal with us, please speak with the pastor.
