GO with Our CommUnity Tables to Serve Our Community
"We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with
you not only the Gospel of Jesus but our lives as well..."
I Thessalonians 2:8
We are sent by the Spirit to GO and restore all things to God through Jesus Christ.
God sent Jesus to Earth to take on human form and live within the culture. He lived in such a way that those around him could see and experience what God was truly like. Jesus came so all people, places, and things could be restored to a right relationship with God. We believe we are missionaries sent by God’s Spirit into our culture to restore all things to God through Jesus. We live this out through involvement in a community on mission together. (John 1:14; 20:21; Colossians 1:19; 2 Corinthians 5:16-21).
Families GATHER around tables, and our family GATHERS in smaller groups we call CommUnity Tables so we can GO and GIVE to our neighbors together.
- through community (together)
- through service projects
- through short-term trips
- through service days
- through community partnerships and our LoveOrange website.
- and many other ways.
Our people generously decide to dedicate 10% of our congregational income (our First Fruits) to be used to GO and GIVE to our community through the activities mentioned above.
What is a City Group?
When several Community Tables partner together in a region or on mission together they for a City Group. A City Group might have combined leadership, host retreats or outreach events distinct from other Commmunity Tables. A City Group could also eventually grow to become a unique congregation.
Currently, though we have CommUnity Tables in multiple cities, we have two City Groups, Orange and Irvine.
