Table Groups

The heartbeat of Common Table Decatur is our Table Group communities. These groups are all unique in their focus but similar in their rhythms: taking time to connect in community, stay rooted in wisdom and spiritual practices, and engage in serving alongside our neighbors.

  • canned pinto beans

  • canned kidney beans

  • canned mixed vegetables

  • canned green beans

  • chunky size soups (beef or chicken )

Weekly Worship Gathering

Every Sunday at 10:00am

Gather with us every week to sing, pray, center ourselves for the week ahead, and share a meal around a common digital table. Because of the continuing risks of COVID-19 and out of love for others, we are continuing to gather online on Facebook and Zoom. When the weather warms up we hope to gather for an outdoor worship option as well.
