The Table is a new church community in the Indianapolis area that envisions a multiplying movement of Jesus communities networked together under a common mission to encounter, embody, and extend the presence of Christ in neighborhoods and networks all over Indy.
We gather publicly in 2 main ways: Sunday Worship and Table Groups.
Sunday Worship: Word & Table (11:15am)
Anglican worship is centered on an encounter with Jesus.
We worship in the same basic pattern that most Christians have worshiped through the centuries. We sing God’s praises, we hear God’s Word and we respond through prayers and confession. We offer ourselves to God as we celebrate Holy Communion and we are sent out with a blessing to do God’s work.
Anglican worship is ancient and modern.
The new (electronic keyboards, guitars, new songs, projection screens) and the old (chalices, candles, old prayers) work together to create a worship experience that is consistent with our past and fitting for our future.
Sundays at 11:15 am
3535 Kessler Blvd E Dr in Indy (Spirit of Joy Church)
We’re in Ordinary Time, the season after Pentecost, and we are training a College of Preachers during the summer, preaching through the lectionary Gospel readings (through August 12, 2018).
Everyone is welcome. You don’t need to wear anything fancy or know anything special. Here are some photos of our worship gathering over the past few months:
Seriously, don’t expect a big concert or special effects. It’s a pretty simple service, and it does have an intentional structure to it (hearing God speak to us, and responding as a community), but you’ll have a booklet and friends to help you navigate the movements.
About kids: bring ’em if you got ’em! We like kids. Everyone is together at the beginning of the service, then during the scripture and sermon time, kids (K-5th) have their own time of hearing and responding to God’s word. They rejoin the adults for communion at the table. We also have a nursery.
Table Groups are about taking the encounter of Sunday and embodying the presence of Christ around our dining rooms tables in neighborhoods and relational networks.
Table Groups meet on various evenings during the week. If you’re interested in joining us for one, join us for worship on a Sunday and ask about Table Groups, or fill out the form below and we can get you connected.
This is a lot of what we do at Table Groups:
If you’re intrigued by this and resonate with the vision, visit us on a Sunday! Or fill out the form below to start a conversation about how to get connected. Which could include sitting down for coffee. We like coffee. And sitting down.
