At the end of every quarter we review what took place over the past few months as a way to let you know how your investment continues to pay dividends, but also to celebrate the favor that God has given our community. Reviewing what God has done never ceases to amaze me.
Below you’ll get a glimpse of the impact that you helped our community make over the past three months. Toward the bottom of the page is a snippet of our Q3 financials. I hope you will catch sight of what we’ve accomplished, but more than that I want you to capture a picture of what we value. As you read about SERVE Day, 21 Days of Prayer, and updates to our TableKIDS ministry, you will see some of the things we treasure: serving our community, praying first above everything, and developing the next generation. Each of those things are so important to how we identify as a community.
Enjoy reading this report and allow it to prompt you to pray for growth in each of these key areas! Thank you for your generosity.
// SERVE DAY //
In July, we participated in SERVE Day, an opportunity to partner with churches around the globe in being the hands and feet of Jesus to their local communities. Our church had over 85 participants serve at nine different sites around the city that were coordinated by an incredible team of SERVE Day leaders!

// 21 DAYS OF PRAYER //
At The Table, we take advantage of seasons to refocus ourselves on Christ. As individuals and a church body, we started off this fall with 21 Days of Prayer. With 21 daily prayer prompts to guide us through this period, our church prayed together daily as we lifted up the health of our country, our city, our leaders, our church, and our own lives. As a church, prayers were answered as leadership positions were filled, our TableKIDS ministry expanded, and we successfully launched a new small group ministry (Dinner Parties!). Individually, people were healed from illness, found new jobs, and relationships were restored. If you’d like to share with us how God moved in your life this season, click here.
// TABLEKIDS //
A strong family ministry has always been our desire at The Table. This past quarter, Bethany Bolte joined our team of ministry directors as the Director of Family Ministry. Our TableKIDS program also experienced significant growth in both children and new leadership. We had 16 people join our team of TableKIDS leaders! For the first time, we launched a small group model for our pre-teens as well as for our elementary kids. Children ages eight and up are reading from the Bible together every Sunday and children are growing in their relationships with Christ, their mentors, and one another.
Thank you for partnering with us in ministry this quarter. We continue to be amazed by all that God is doing in and through our church. Every moment captured here and so many more are only possible because of your generosity. Thank you for investing in your community and joining with us as we strive to live out God’s vision for our church in DC.
