All Saints at the Table
“To those of us who believe that all of life is sacred, every crumb of bread and sip of wine is a Eucharist, a remembrance, a call to awareness of holiness right where we are.” —Shauna Niequist, Bread and Wine: A Love Letter to Life Around the Table
All Saints is organizing an evening to gather in homes across neighborhoods of Austin and enjoy a meal together.
"All Saints at the Table" will take place on June 16, 2019 at 5:00 PM.
Hospitality is one of the ten spiritual formation practices All Saints has adopted as a church.
All Saints at the Table marries our love for hospitality and joy in community by connecting neighbors in our church for a meal in a member’s home. On the evening of June 16, 2019, the families of All Saints will sit down in homes all across town to break bread and meet in fellowship. Host families will open their homes and share a meal with other All Saints members to build new relationships, reach out to a new neighbor and nurture community within our church body.
See below for more on what to expect as a guest or a host. If you have any further questions, or if you'd like to register after the deadline has passed, email Jenn Ripley.
