Lutheran Table Talk
The Table Talk class at Bethany is for people from all backgrounds who have lots of questions. Some may wish to explore some of the basics of the faith. Others may wish to ask about the particular differences between our church and others. All are welcome. We provide an environment of food, laughter and fellowship to be the background for the most important message anyone can receive. No classes are scheduled at this time, but recordings of previous classes are available for review.
We call the class “Table Talk” because as a family chosen by God, the family table is where we connect. It is not unusual to hear in many Christian homes, the table prayer “Come, Lord Jesus.” Jesus is at the center of our table and as we give thanks for the goodness that flows into our lives, we also are sent out so that love, joy and peace can flow from our lives into the lives as others.
