Abundance at the Table
This year you are invited to participate in a church-wide Lenten discipline that flows from the lectionary-based theme: God’s Abundance. For four of the six weeks of Lent, tables will be available in neighborhoods throughout Durham for weekly potluck meals. You are welcomed to explore the abundance of friendship, fellowship, and food in your own backyard.
Click here to sign up for a table. We look forward to journeying through Lent with you!

The Comeback: Small Group Study for Lent
Study Collaboration with Duke Memorial UMC & Trinity UMC
Have you ever longed for a comeback? We all know what it feels like to have life disappoint us and not work out as we'd hoped. We all know what it's like to long for something different, something better, something more. All are invited to this small group study led by Rev. Carolyn Schuldt, executive director of Open Table Ministries. Supper served at 5:00 pm followed with study from 5:30-6:30 pm in the Pine Room at Trinity UMC.
