The Open Table

The Open Table is a community of hospitality and conversation; a place of rest and beauty. Everyone who has imperfections or struggles with deep questions is welcome. Our gatherings are simple and our theology is earthy. We gather for shared meals, songs, and short topical discussions about the intersections of spirituality and life. Our inspiration comes from a first-century Jew named Jesus Christ who birthed a new society in the shell of the old, a society full of outcasts whose faith and actions were wholly integrated. We curate spaces and experiences meant to challenge and inspire, so we can rediscover ourselves and experiment with ways to care for the world around us. Our gatherings are community sourced so many perspectives can be included, and our hospitality grows out of conversation with those around the dinner table, regularly taking us into the community. Join us every second and fourth Sunday from 6:30 - 8:00pm for food, music, and conversation.

To close out our political series, we looked at ways the church’s practices can transcend the narrower political systems that end at every nation’s geographic boundaries.  Rev. Dr. Mike Graves, Professor of Preaching and Worship at Saint Paul School of Theology, led us in a discussion about the political power of common practices like Communion.

In every political system, some people have more access, power and privilege than others. Rev. Dr. Wallace Hartsfield II joined us to discuss the United States’ recent political history, citing various ways our political system works (and doesn’t work) for white folks, black folks, and other minorities living in our borders.  Dr. Hartsfield is Pastor of Metropolitan Missionary Baptist Church and Associate Professor of Hebrew Bible at Central Baptist Theological Seminary
