What is Grace's Table?

The idea behind Grace’s Table is simple: Every Friday evening, Lisa opens her own home to a dozen girls and their infants and toddlers. They gather around Lisa’s huge kitchen table – a gift from Pioneer Construction – to pray, eat, and talk. Meals bring a variety of people together, but we all sit at equal levels Around the Table in our time together during which we welcome Jesus to be a part. These meals nourish the body and as we share life together, we nourish the soul. 

After dinner and clean-up, the children go to play rooms while their mothers, Lisa, and volunteers talk, pray, problem-solve, and share. This interaction gives these girls the opportunity to build healthy relationships with adults who can mentor them, and show them the love of Jesus on their journey to find hope. The evening concludes and mothers are given diapers, formula, and a bus pass home.

Learn to do good;
Seek justice,
Rebuke the oppressor;
DEFEND the fatherless,
Plead for the widow.
— Isaiah 1:17
