About the show

Welcome to the Table! You are listening to the Kingstowne Communion podcast, with lead pastor Michelle Matthews. The Kingstowne Communion is a new United Methodist church existing to gather people into communion with Jesus Christ through courageous conversation, creative community, and collaborating for the common good. We worship at Island Creek Elementary School (7855 Morning View Lane) every Sunday at 10am. For more information about upcoming events and opportunities to serve, visit our Facebook page, facebook.com/kingstownecommunion. We’re glad that you are listening along with us. If you live close by, we hope you’ll join us in person for worship, and if you feel inclined to help us by giving financially, you can do so on our website, kingstownecommunion.net.
