Jam on the Lawn
Sunday, April 25 | 4pm
Join us for a fun Sunday afternoon jam on the lawn with some local musicians! Bring a chair or blanket and enjoy the spring weather while listening to a great mix of Americana, Folk, and Bluegrass music with Parson's Pickers led by Dan Matthews Jr. and featuring Peter Odom, Jason Barringer, Daniel Bassett and Steve Brown.
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.
We are coming together to raise $6000 for Decatur Education Foundation's Student Mental Health programs and the Haitian Timoun Foundation's work guiding women out of ultra-poverty. Click here for details and to donate.

Organize a Food Drive for DEAM
Decatur Emergency Assistance Ministries is one of our mission partners. They provide food, rent and utility assistance, and other services to people in need. Maybe you could organize a neighborhood, floor, or building food drive…or just grab a few items off their most needed list:
canned beef stew
canned pinto beans
canned kidney beans
canned mixed vegetables
canned green beans
chunky size soups (beef or chicken )
jelly (grape or strawberry)
1 lb. packages of white rice
powdered laundry detergent or pods
shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant
Drop off donations between 8:30am and 10:30am any Wednesday and leave outside the door. Volunteers check regularly! DEAM is located on the lower level of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church (515 E. Ponce de Leon Ave.) off Sycamore Place.
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.
