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.

On the wagon or off the wagon, let's support each other and create a safe and compassionate space for all.

Addiction is something that affects many in our society, yet many people lack the understanding to be a good partner as someone walks the path toward recovery.  Join us in the first of a four part series on addiction as we learn about the science behind addiction and why addiction can be so hard to break.  We will be joined by Taylor Johnson, LCPC, who is currently a counselor and associate professor at MNU in Olathe.
