LM: June 2018

Hello Table Leaders!

Welcome to the June edition of the Table Leadership Monthly newsletter. You'll remember that last month, we started this new newsletter with the effort to improve communication among leadership and make sure you are all informed about what's going on at The Table and what's to come! 

Please take a few minutes to read through what's below and share any pertinent updates with your teams if it applies to them. Prize at the bottom.

Thanks to you all for the ways you serve and love our community. I'm excited for what God has in store this summer at The Table.

Peace,
Jessica
