The Table

Last year, we shared 3,500 meals in The Table room with people from all backgrounds and walks of life. More than serving people a meal, this group focuses on building community among us while "breaking bread together." 

2016 goal: dial up the relational element by deploying hundreds of hosts

The Table is a CFTC experience where we are creating a space for the entire city to share a meal together out of our abundance. Our desire is for guests to feel as if they have come into our home where they are welcomed, and invited into relationship with us. A few years ago we added an element to the experience by offering dessert as an option for those who join us for coffee or hot chocolate while enjoying our performing artists on the main stage.

GIVE

This year, in order to put more of our energies into relationships and less into the project management of the food itself, we are raising the funds to cover the cost of the meal. Consider a $250 Table Sponsorship to help us provide a 3,500-4,000 meals and fellowship for the people attending #CFTC2016.
