My Experience at The Table ...

"I came to the Table in search for a church that I could be spiritually challenged, fed the Word, and most importantly accepted.  Coming from a conservative church and even more conservative Christian college I did not believe such a place of worship existed.  I strongly desired to be myself, a lesbian who loves Jesus.  For most of my life I attempted to be one or the other and in turn was never at peace.  Not only has the Table fulfilled my "wish list" in an organized church it has become much more.  It is an authentic community who cares about you and wants to get to know the true you, yes the one with baggage, questions, doubts, fears, and of course joys! I feel extremely blessed for the opportunity to grab a muffin and a cup of coffee on Sunday mornings to join others at the Table in this crazy journey called life."

"When I first came to the Table I had dealt with many years of hardship with the church and in struggling with my faith as a daughter of a pastor and with the identity of a lesbian woman. My girlfriend and I wanted a place to go where we could share our faith together and show normal loving affection in church.  The Table was not only a place where we could be ourselves but it was a place we we could be challenged in our faith together and separately. The Table has become a second home and its members have become friends who share the joys and daily struggles of life together as a community.  If you are not okay with the status quo of Christianity, you are wondering about Christ, want to dig deeper or want to feel accepted in the LGBTQ community of faith then the Table is a wonderful place to visit."

I have been to many “gay friendly” churches and what makes The Table different is they aren’t just “gay friendly” they are a loving community of people. The Table doesn’t only open their arms to only the LGBTQ community but everyone who walks in the door. I have never felt more loved and supported at a church; these people have become my family. I have found “my tribe” at The Table.
