This small-group time integrates discussion about the sermon, mutual support, and prayer. Each table has a trained Host or Host Couple who facilitates discussion based on application-focused questions which are provided by Pastor Dave.
It Sounds Intimidating.
Table Fellowship may sound intimidating. Some of us struggle with crippling thoughts/fears that we have nothing to contribute. The Bible says that is not true—everyone has something to contribute (1 Cor. 12:7-10; 14-26).
Recognizing that we are all in different places in our spiritual journey, our Table Hosts will always give permission for you to “pass” on the discussion or on praying aloud. No one is forced to participate although everyone is invited to. The hosts are trained to invite everyone but coerce no one.
Frequently Asked Questions
How about visitors?
There is Table specifically geared for visitors and those not yet assigned to a table. This table is hosted by Pastor Dave, and his wife Dianne.
What about the kids?
After a blessing, children ages 4 years through 5th grade are dismissed to “Children’s Table Fellowship,” which is much like traditional Sunday School. We also provide nursery for those under 4 years of age.
And the teens?
At PCC we value the input and ministry of our teens. Those 6th grade and above participate in Table Fellowship where they are encouraged to be involved with the discussion and have opportunity to relate to adults in a healthy, safe environment.
