Rhythms. As a new church we are discovering what our rhythms will be as a community. We want our rhythms or habits to form us as a people. As such we desire to balance our upward movement toward God (worship/devotion), our inward movement toward each other (spiritual community/fellowship), and our outward movement as part of the kingdom of God (neighborhood renewal/outreach). We currently meet in a home the 2nd/4th Sunday of the month for a time of worship and teaching. Check out our Events page for more details.
They committed themselves to the teaching of the apostles, the life together, the common meal, and the prayers…They followed a daily discipline of worship in the Temple followed by meals at home, every meal a celebration, exuberant and joyful, as they praised God. People in general liked what they saw.
- Acts 2:42 & 46
Meals are a powerful expression of welcome and friendship in every culture. Jesus spent a large portion of his time eating with friends, followers, and foes. So we join to together regularly to share a meal with each other and our neighbors. By doing so we hope to meet new friends and develop strong community within our neighborhood.
We meetup weekly in groups of 3 to 7 for relationship building, spiritual formation, and accountability. (Don't let "accountability" scare you. We just want what's best for each other). Whether you've had an active faith for years or are just beginning to explore your faith, you'll find a relaxed environment where questions are welcomed.
Until we begin weekly gatherings (at the Dahlia Campus for Health), we meet twice a month on Sundays at 10am for prayer, worship, and teaching at a home in Northeast Park Hill. Families with children are invited to join us as we have activities for the kids. Some kids choose to participate with some or all of the "big people" happenings. Visit our Events page for times, locations, and more details.
Since we are a church in infancy, we are looking for people who might share our vision of creating a church that works for good of the neighborhood. We are confident that God is forming a team of church pioneers to step out in faith and join this adventure. We encourage you to pray and ask God if he would have you join us.
Engaging in service leads to life change. Whether you serve in a ministry at The Hills, in Park Hill, or in the world, God calls us to serve one another. At The Hills we want to be known for our generosity - both with our time and finances - toward those in our neighborhood. Through our partnerships with great local organizations, we provide opportunities to meet real needs in our neighborhood.
What happens at The Table?
We eat. We chat. We get to know another. Pretty simple.
Who is invited?
Our neighbors in and around Park Hill. No religious affiliation required. If you live outside of Park Hill, you're invited too!
Why do we do this? What’s the hidden agenda?
There is no hidden agenda. We want to help our neighbors get to know each other. You might find yourself talking about your hobby and your interests. We might do the same so you might hear us talking about Jesus from time to time. We promise not to "sell" Jesus if you promise not to sell your oils, teas, coffees, supplements, cosmetics, kitchen products, or creams. :)
We started The Table because we are committed to seeing our neighborhood prosper. We want to help our neighbors get to know each other. Living in Park Hill we have found that people take pride in the neighborhood and want to know their neighbors. However, there are limited natural social gathering spaces in Park Hill. This is even more pronounced in the northern half of the neighborhood since it was designed without sidewalks. All are welcome at The Table whether you claim to follow Jesus or not, whether you agree with our theology or not, whether you’ve been in the neighborhood three weeks or thirty years. If you would like a full explanation about why we think sharing meals is so important, you can read THIS.
When/where does this happen?
We typically meet every second/fourth Friday of the month Spring thru Fall. During the winter, we usually have the Table once a month. Check out the Event calendar for the next Table. RSVP is appreciated but not required. For now, we just have the one table, but we can't wait to see more tables shared throughout Park Hill - neighbors connecting on every block. Contact us if you'd like to start one on your block.
