This is a group for those who want to develop deeper relationships with God and others. We live surrounded by people, but often we don't really have close relationships with people which can lead to feelings of isolation and loneliness. While this group doesn't promise to cure it, we do hope that we can work together to advance the idea that we are better together than we are alone. Whether you are a skeptic, seeker, or believer, we believe that we can come together and learn from each other's stories as we find our own place in God's story, revealed through the Bible.
Here are our values, around the acrostic CARE: Collaboration - We are better together, than we are alone Authenticity - After all, no one likes a fake. Respect - Everyone has equal value because they are created by God. Excellence - Constantly growing. Faithfully serving. Together.
Let me also just say what this group is not: 1. It's not just a church group. We love many of our local churches and places of worship but we hope this will be a space that everyone can be welcome. 2. It's not just a networking -- drop in every three months -- kind of group. We understand that life gets busy. But we want to build stronger relationship and that means spending time together! 3. There's no pressure. We invite you to come and check out our group but we also understand that it may not be for you. That's okay!
To provide a safe and welcoming space, here are some ground rules:
• All members must have a clear picture of themselves in their profile.
• Any member that doesn't participate in a 1 month period will be removed from the group.
• Each member must be approved by the group organizer and answer a few cool questions!
SPACE at each meetup IS LIMITED TO 12 INDIVIDUALS, so sign up soon!
We hope that you'll join us at the Open Table. You're welcome!
