Living Table is a compassionate community drawn together in Christ to embody love, seek justice, and invite healing.

A diverse group of cartoon people using different phones and laptops set up for worship service; the Living Table logo, which represents our altar, is the altar in this image.

We are W.I.S.E. which means that we are welcoming, inclusive, supportive, and engaged with persons who have mental health challenges

We believe in just peace which means that world peace will be achieved through justice for all

We are open and affirming which means that we welcome QT (queer and/or trans) people intentionally, and people of all gender identities and sexual orientations

We strive to be anti-racist which means we commit to seeking and supporting racial justice for all peoples

We believe that God is still speaking in sacred and contemporary texts and through creation itself
