About The Table Church


The Table Church is unique:

- We believe that Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection reveal what God is truly like.

- We believe that Scripture, interpreted through the person of Jesus, is authoritative for our lives.

- We believe that following the way of Jesus is worth inviting others to give their lives to.

- It’s because of those beliefs that we work to be a place of radical welcome and inclusion. A more beautiful understanding of the Gospel should be explicitly anti-racist; should support leadership by all genders; should affirm LGBTQ+ people; and should work to do God’s will “on earth as it is on heaven.”


What Size is the Church? Depends on how you measure! Around 400 or more people call The Table Church their primary spiritual community and regularly give, serve, or attend one of our groups and classes. Sunday service attendance is around 100-200 hundred each weekend.


What Sorts of People Attend The Table? There are all sorts of folx at The Table that span age, stage, race, sexuality, and faith journey. The middle of the bell-curve is a lot of 20- & 30-somethings who are rebuilding their faith.


Are You Part of A Denomination? We are non-denominational, and leaders and congregation members come from various faith traditions, including Jewish and Muslim. However, our theology has been shaped more by Wesleyan-Arminian, Anabaptist, and Orthodox Traditions (think the Methodist, Nazarene, Mennonite, and Anglican denominations) and less by Augustinian, Reformed, and Calvinist traditions (think Southern Baptist, Christian Reformed, or Presbyterian denominations).


Non-Discrimination Statement


The Table Church believes that no aspect of someone's identity should limit their ability to participate in the life of the Church entirely. Therefore: Membership, Employment, Eligibility for Eldership and Officership, other Church Leadership Roles, and Religious Rites (such as marriage, baptism, communion, and funerals) must not be denied based on one's identity, including race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, marital status, citizenship, national origin, veteran status, or genetic information.


All Elders, Pastors, and Employees must agree to adhere to our non-discriminatory values. Refusal to adhere may lead to discipline—up to termination of Employment, Eldership, or Officership.

What Style Is the Music? We currently pull mostly from Christian Top 40 Worship Charts (Hillsong, Elevation, Passion). The band is made up of synth-keys, bass and acoustic guitar, drums, 1-2 vocalists, and multitracks. We’d like to expand the spectrum of worship styles we offer, including gospel, hymns, and liturgy.
