The Table

The Table

What is The Table?
The Table is simply an opportunity for the women of Bethany to build community with other women. It's a time to chat, laugh and maybe make one or two new friends. This isn't a big-crowd sort of event. Instead, The Table consists of many individual small group gatherings, hosted by various women in the church. These gatherings occur at different days and times to accommodate as many schedules as possible.

There's no agenda when you attend a Table gathering, just a desire to create a space for women to connect and relax in a casual, laid-back environment. Each event is unique, since the hostesses of each Table plan their own gatherings. These small group gatherings take place semi-annually in the Spring and Fall.

To Join one of the Tables below, please sign up in person at Bethany, online, or contact thetable@bethanycentral.org. Below are the groups we have available now. Size of each group is limited so sign up quickly!
