What are Table Groups?
Table Groups are an extension of the Lord’s Table into our own homes. Table Groups offer a meaningful place of belonging where we meet together for a communal meal, a time of sharing and discussion, and common prayer. Table Groups are a place of formation, fellowship, and Christian hospitality, where we explore what it looks like to live all of life in reference to Christ.
What happens at a Table Group?
Table Groups are a weekly gathering of small groups of people (6-12) from our church community. The “liturgy” of the Table Group consists of three things: a shared meal, discussion of Scripture, and Evening Prayer. The shared meal is always done as a coordinated potluck style. We generally discuss the passage of Scripture that was preached on the Sunday before. And we always take time to pray for each other and our needs during Evening Prayer.
Where do the groups meet?
We currently have four weekly Table Groups which meet throughout the city and in the East Bay. We are actively starting new groups across the city. We hope to one day have Table Groups in every neighborhood in San Francisco and throughout the Bay so that every can be connected to others in their own geographic context.
The SoMa group is led by Noelle and Mark. They meet Wednesdays at 7:00.
The Potrero Group is led by Matt and Ivy. They meet Thursdays at 7:00.
Pac Heights Group
The Pac Heights group is led by Tom and Melissa. They meet Tuesdays at 7:00.
East Bay Group
The East Bay group is led by John and Ferial. This group meets in Emeryville and serves those who are located throughout the East Bay. This group meets on Wednesdays at 6:00. We are actively seeking to expand our Table Group reach in the East Bay.
How do I get connected?
If you would like to get connected to a Table Group, contact Fr. Kyle (kyle@eucharistSF.org) and he will tell you about what groups are meeting and when/where. He can make an introduction to a group leader who will put you in the loop.
In addition to weekly Table Groups we also have a ‘Monthly Gathering’ which are Table Groups in formation, but may serve a slightly different purpose. Our monthly gathering focuses on forming sacramental communities in new geographic locations. Currently we have one monthly gathering happening in the North-East Bay (Mare Island). If you’re interested in hearing more about this gathering or starting a similar gathering, please contact Fr. Kyle (kyle@eucharistSF.org)
