Each Sunday in Epiphany we heard the song “For Everyone Born, a Place at the Table.” The kingdom table, and our understanding of christian hospitality, expanded with the unfolding story of the Gospel. In Lent we will explore the wideness of God’s mercy through the lens of the Gospel of Luke. The table will continue to expand and, inevitably, we will find ourselves surprised by an ever-expanding guest list.
We invite you to participate in one of several opportunities in the Lenten Season to engage in meaningful encounters around tables in our community. 

Coordinated Dinners

Each group will meet once for dinner. We will be in touch with dates/information once have a critical mass. Please e-mail Pastor@tbcrichmond.org to request more info.
