Announcing the Turquoise Table

The new turquoise picnic table on the front lawn of the church is a simple act of hospitality to our neighborhood. It is meant as a community gathering space. Our dream is that it will not only be a place to sit and rest, but also a place where neighbors meet – accidentally or on purpose – and get to know one another.

                Consider using this table for personal relaxation, meeting a friend for conversation, or holding small church meetings out there. Tell others that it’s here for them to use as well. We have cards with details attached to the table and in the back of the sanctuary. Pass one along to someone you know. Learn more at theturquoisetable.com.
