Feast 2011: festival of word, table, & image

Feast is a gathering in which we nurture our creative, caring, spiritual selves through our very presence. We will gather together at table to enjoy a beautifully prepared meal, feast through sermons and our voices in worship, and delight using our senses through liturgical art & the art gallery. Come, enjoy, and share the tastes of the day.

Come to the table. You are welcome there.

Here’s what some of the 2010 participants had to say about Feast:

“I heard three amazing sermons. Each was unique. Each was excellent.”

“The sense of community could be felt. I was so amazed by the Festival.”

“The best word I could use to describe it: refreshing. My mind, body and spirit were renewed.”

“I loved the 2009 Festival, but I have to say that the Festival keeps getting better and better.”
