Dear Table Church,
As we reflect on this past quarter of ministry, we are grateful to each and every person who makes church happen. The Table has never been built on the talents of a few, but on the sacrificial giving of many. Thank you for making this community possible. Below are some of the highlights from this past quarter as well as a snapshot of our finances. As we step into this season of transition together, I am grateful to be leading among some of the best servant leaders The Table has ever had. Thank you for your dedication, giving, time, and energy that you pour into this community.
Interim Lead Pastor
This Holy Week, we had over 400 people gather in our churches to remember Christ’s sacrifice on Good Friday and the power of his resurrection on Easter morning. To make this weekend even more exciting, we also had seven people publicly declare their faith and step into the waters of baptism!
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Each May, we cease from doing more and aim to do less in order to rest and appreciate the spiritual discipline of sabbath. Our Dinner Parties went on Spring Break and out Next Steps Team pressed pause so our leaders could simply attend Sunday service and focus on nothing else. It is in seasons of rest where we find Christ at our center and aim to honor him in the mundane, the simple, and the time we set aside to rest in his presence.
On May 5, Pastor Kevin announced that he and his family would be moving to California to begin a new season, and that June 30 would be his last Sunday at The Table. We are grateful for all the Lum’s have sacrificed to build The Table Church into what it is. They will be deeply missed!
On June 30, Pastor Jessica was installed as our Interim Lead Pastor and will serve throughout this transition season. Jessica previously served as Executive Pastor at The Table and has been on staff for three years. She will be joined at the pulpit by Pastor Angela, Pastor Richard, Pastor Raimon, and one of our elders, Bekki Fahrer, as they preach throughout this transition season.
The Table is a unique place where many have come too experience the unconditional love of Jesus. We are confident in our future because we know God holds our next steps in his hands.
