Build a Bigger Table Book Study

Build a Bigger Table Book Study

Join Us in a Church-Wide Book Study

This fall, join the congregation in a book study of A Bigger Table: Building Messy, Authentic, and Hopeful Spiritual Community. The book includes a study guide which we will use over the course of seven weekly sessions starting the week of September 11 and finishing the week of October 26.

Our hope is to create individual learning and awareness, and as a group, discuss ways that we can create a more welcoming congregation.

About the Book

Pastor John Pavlovitz invites readers to join him on the journey to find—or build—a church that is big enough for everyone. He speaks clearly into the heart of the issues the Christian community has been earnestly wrestling with: LGBT inclusion, gender equality, racial tensions, and global concerns. A Bigger Table: Building Messy, Authentic, Hopeful Spiritual Community asks if organized Christianity can find a new way of faithfully continuing the work Jesus began two thousand years ago, where everyone gets a seat.
