At our Family Table, we don’t avoid talking about issues of race and racism.

Instead, we always come back to the broken body and shed blood of Jesus as we learn to stay at the table. Whether you’ve been at this table your whole life or you’re brand new, there is a seat for you at the Family Table.

Look out for the next round of Table Talks Coming Winter 2024!
