Church is about presence
We envision The Table as a multiplying network of neighborhood churches that work together under the common mission of encountering, embodying, and extending the presence of Christ in neighborhoods and networks all over Indy.
Why “The Table”?
When Jesus gathered his disciples together on the night he was betrayed, he didn’t give them a long list of rules to follow. He didn’t give them a comprehensive system of doctrines to believe. He didn’t prescribe a doctrinal statement to get everyone to sign.
He gave them a meal. He offered them a table, and told them to keep gathering at this table as a way to remember him.
The Table became the compass in the new creation inaugurated by Jesus. He instituted a gracious economy of thanksgiving, hospitality, mutuality, and unity. We resonate deeply with the “table economy” of Jesus: it is the old wine we seek to pour into the “new wineskin” of Indianapolis.
The Table is a picture of the hospitality of God, who invites us to his table, to feast on his goodness and share in the abundance of his kingdom.
The Table is an emblem of covenant community, where we share together that which is necessary for life, loving one another and caring for one another in Christ.
The Table is also an expression of God’s mission in Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit. As God has extended his hospitality toward us, we open the table to those who would say yes to God’s welcome. They join us at the table and become fellow sharers in the goodness of God.
