“I want you to know how moving and wonderful the service was this morning. God is at work and I’m so grateful ...”
“My kids were engaged for the whole service. That never happens. And when they’re engaged, I am engaged. It was solid on all levels. For kids and adults.”
“My son was saying on the car ride home how much he enjoyed it. Which he has literally never said about church. It was smart to have the kids participate and the sermon was multi-level and spot on for the audience. Great work!”
“You know I’ve said before that this type of thing is not my gig – but I was moved by this service. You hit it out of the park. Well done!”
“Usually the full 24 hours before Sunday morning are a battle of ‘why do we have to go to church?!’ After this past Sunday, they all said how much the loved the Family Table Service and were asking if that was going to be every Sunday and if they could go again!”
“Thank you so much for this wonderful family service. And thank you all for being so welcoming to us this year. I appreciate this more than you all can know.”
“What a wonderful, spirit-filled service! I Loved it!”
I’m happy to report that the family service table is connecting for our family. …And not just for our kids, but for me as well. The music, sermons and the overall environment have been warm and inviting — it truly feels as if All Saints is building a table where ALL are welcome.
“As one who has attended all of two Family Table services, the phrase that comes to mind is “Surprised by Joy”! As a rather stodgy, hidebound lover of Rite I and all thereto, I really did not expect to be so taken with this informal mode of service. It was the singing that immediately drew me in, and the sweetness of the presentation and its assembly.
I found it affecting in a new way – authentic and participatory, in a relaxing and undemanding yet inviting atmosphere redolent of the Holy Spirit. The combination of different generations works to good and spontaneous effect. Moving and dear.”
“Family Table is like a good Disney movie – the kids AND the adults are all engaged and enjoy worshipping TOGETHER!”
