Church Around the Table (CATT)
June - October 2022
We are about to begin our second season of Church Around the Table. We've made a few changes, but largely CATT will operate as it did last year (groups are larger). Below is a review of what to expect. I hope you'll join us as we live into the call to be Church together.
DATES: Second Sunday of the month
What is CATT and why do it?
Church Around the Table is a way to worship and engage with one another in a smaller setting. By gathering around a table or on folding chairs in a circle in the backyard, CATT provides an opportunity to be church in a way that everyone is seen, creating an opportunity to deepen relationships and forge new ones.
Instead of gathering in our building, on the second Sunday of the next 5 months (June - October), we’ll worship with the same 10-15 folks, in backyards, giving us a chance to study scripture, ask questions, share stories and learn with and from one another in new ways. Church is not a building; church is a body, made up of many seekers, each on a journey of faith.
CATT is a chance for us to experiment with alternative ways of living out the call of Christ to love our neighbors; to seek justice and kindness and humbly walk with God. Deepening our relationships with Christ and one another is one of our hopes for this alternative way of being Church.
We hope everyone will choose to participate.
Sometime in the next week, you should receive an email, phone call or text from your group host or facilitator inviting you to be a part of a group. Please let them know if you're able to come to the June 12 gathering.
