In February of this year, 2019 Advent began an endeavor to provide an alternative worship experience designed to attract folks for whom our traditional morning worship was not fulfilling. A committee was formed and enthusiastically looked to define what music and design would allow us to welcome folks known as the "Nones" (grew up without a church experience) and "Dones" (folks who left the church because they were hurt or just wasn't meeting their spiritual needs). This effort has been led by our Pastoral Intern Aimee Pakan whose many gifts, especially musically, helped the design.
The Table was the result of these collaborations. It debuted on February 9, 2020. The design of this worship focused not only on a different style of music, but centered on building community around tables where 5-8 folks could worship, discuss, and grow together. Of course we were only able to meet for 6 weeks before the Co-Vid 19 pandemic struck. After a one week break we started up again on March 29th. What we discovered is that the heart of this effort was lost as an on-line experience.
For the time being only we are suspending this worship experience. We believe that continuing to explore the possibilities of alternative worship are essential to our mission at Advent. The team that worked on creating this worship will continue to meet until we have created a way to either present a more effective on-line worship or re-open when it is safe to once again gather in our building. Please continue to pray for this endeavor and support it in any way you can. WATCH THIS SPACE!! We'll keep you updated and will appreciate any input you may have. Join the team! Drop us an email if you are willing to help us move to the next step as we strive to live up to the mission... So ALL may know Christ's love!
