Micah is getting ordained!

Micah James Ordination

Our youth minister, Rev. Micah James, is getting ordained in a big worship extravaganza on June 2 at 3 pm. Everyone in the Table and broader church community is invited to attend. If you have never been to an ordination service before, it’s truly a unique experience. There will be excellent preaching, great music, and plenty of words of hope. It will be a definite moment of celebration in Micah’s journey. We hope to remind her how much we have appreciated her hard work and the gift it has been to learn together over the past three years.

Mark your calendars and plan to be there!


Images from Easter

Easter worship at the Table was rad today. What a gift! Lots of art, colors, and beauty. Check out some pictures below. (Credit to Don Morris Jr. for the great photography.)

Looking to Easter

Jesus Built Tables, Not Walls

Easter is not here yet, but I am extending an invite to all my friends, fellow bloggers, and seekers to come join us for the Table this Sunday.

Many of our neighbors will get a invite card that looks like the image above. If you are wanting to return to church or discover a community that practices God’s hospitality, I hope you check us out. Our gathering takes place at 9:30 AM in the Community Room (below the sanctuary) at East Dallas Christian Church (629 N. Peak St., Dallas, TX). Park in the parking lot and follow the Table signs. Grab a donut and some coffee on the way in at our little breakfast bar. Say hello to some of our regulars. We begin worship with music and continue with a mixture of prayer, conversation, and communion. It’s relaxed and informal – dress as you feel comfortable. If you’ve got kids, you can check them in to our nursery or one of our Sunday School classes where they will have a good time. (My daughter and son can attest to that!)

The Table is a great community – our people are such a blessing, so generous and thoughtful and fun. I believe that comes from the fact that we celebrate and honor Jesus’ generosity and hospitality first shared with us. Wherever you are in your theology or life, come check us out!

For more information about us, check out our various Find Your Place pages, like a map on our location page, what our worship is like, more info about our activities for children and youth, and a convenient contact us form. In addition to worship, we are rapidly expanding our small group options. We have members who participate in our church’s bell choir, our pub ministry, and a Wednesday bible study. In April, we are launching more groups – stay tuned for info on those!

I hope to see you this Easter!


Fat Tuesday & the Pub

Tonight, our party-loving Faith in the City pub ministry crew will brave the Mardis Gras crowds to hit Dodie’s on lower Greenville (2129 Greenville Ave, Dallas, TX). We hope you can join us. We’ll be talking, chatting, enjoying good food, and celebrating the last day before Lent. All are invited. Look for me or for the folks with a few Banned Questions about Jesus books. Our question of the night will be about Jesus’ first miracle in the Gospel of John – what did it mean that he turned water into wine? Does that mean it’s okay to drink?

Then tomorrow night, we’ll have our Ash Wednesday service at 7:00 PM in the Sanctuary at East Dallas Christian Church. Join us.

Closing out the year

Here’s a few dates and upcoming events to mark down on your calendar as we close out the year and look ahead. As a community, I am thankful for the ways we have shared God’s love with others in this past year. I look forward to more of the same in the new year. We really are a community that does our best to practice God’s hospitality – we mean it when we want to welcome others to our worship and gathering times.

Dec. 15, 5-8 PM
Tomorrow, a group of folks are helping Reconciliation Outreach organize their angel tree effort before Christmas. The toys, clothes, and other items will be wrapped by the parents of those receiving the gifts on Saturday. If you signed up, meet at Reconciliation Outreach from 5-8 PM on Thursday.

Dec. 18th, 9:30 AM
Sunday is our last Table worship of the year! Please come. We’ll close out our year with great energy and passion. Wear Christmas sweaters, a Santa hat, or even festive socks! Celebrate with some great Christmas carols. Join us as we gather round the Table, 9:30 AM in the Community Room at EDCC.

Dec. 18th, 6:30 PM
Join us for our big Christmas concert, Sing We Now of Christmas, in the Sanctuary. This year’s even welcomes members of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, Cast of Bronze bell choir, and other special guests. It’s going to be a feast for your ears in this holiday season.

Dec. 24th, 5:30 PM & Dec. 25th, 11:00 AM
The church has one Christmas Eve service at 5:30 PM in the Sanctuary and one Christmas Sunday service at 11:00 AM (feel free to wear comfy clothes, like your favorite Christmas sweater).

Jan. 1st, 10:30 AM
Finally, on New Year’s Sunday, Jan. 1st, we’ll have one service again, a big festive, celebration brunch in the Great Hall, sponsored by the Table. We will need your help with this, as greeters, hosts, and participants. Not only will we eat biscuits and gravy, egg casseroles, and more, we will bless one another for the New Year!
