“Through us, He brings knowledge of Christ. Everywhere we go, people breathe in the exquisite fragrance.” 2 Corinthians 2:14-15
Pastor Jody has challenged us as a church congregation to invite people outside of our normal flow of activity into our homes for a meal. The challenge is to spread the sweet aroma of Christ to those who do not know Him.
2,000 Tables is achieved when everyone hosts a Table Event in October, November, and December. We believe 2,000 Tables — 2,000 opportunities to share a meal, tell our stories, and pray for each other — has the power to significantly impact on our community. While this initiative is not unique to King Street (other churches have held similar goals), it is a call that directly speaks to our church’s second and third core values: to be relationally connected by Christ, and missionally engaged for Christ.
It is a three-fold plan:
Sharing food together, preferably in your own home, is an important part of this initiative. Eating together contributes to an environment of community and connection.
Make an effort to share more about yourself with your dinner guests. You can share funny anecdotes and favorite family stories but as you are able, be real and share your struggles too. You’d be surprised how easily people can identify with you when they know your life isn’t perfect either. Explain how you came to know Christ and how He has been working in your life. Be a good listener as well. “How did you guys meet? What is it that you do for a living? Tell me more about…” The sharing of stories is a powerful thing!
This is as simple as asking, “How can I be praying for you?” You can choose to pray in the moment or make a commitment to pray later.
