Fall, Winter, Spring (we take a break in the summer)
Wednesday nights are an important time of fellowship and learning in the Pullen community. An informal meal among friends old and new, an open place to voice prayer concerns and celebrate joys, and an opportunity to engage our hearts and minds together as we seek to be the people of God in our place and time.
Wednesday Nights- Join us at “The Table”
Wednesday night is a busy time for the Pullen family. We begin at 5:15 PM in Finlator Hall with a meal that provides valuable time to visit with fellow Pullenites. Dinner is available until at least 6:00 PM. At 6:30 PM adults participate in a program that concludes at 7:30 PM as the children’s and youth programming ends.
During the fall of 2019, we’re excited to welcome you the The Table on Wednesdays! This new name for our Wednesday evening gathering reflects its character and purpose.
There is a tangible vibrancy around this time that we share around the table. That’s what makes this mid-week gathering one of our favorite Pullen activities. At the table we get to share stories, concerns, joys and jokes–the kind of thing we don’t always have time for on a Sunday morning. And, of course, we also get to share a meal! This fall features a brand new menu from our new chef, Julie Gilbert, who brings a passion for building community through fresh, locally sourced, healthy food.
The Table is about connecting with each other around food and conversation, and in a world that is so busy–so heavily scheduled–we need to take more time to simply be, and to be with one another. You’ll see more intentionality around this when we launch in September. Some evenings will feature programming that is celebratory and communal, like our Luau on September 18 or the drum circle planned for October 2. When possible these activities will take place on the evenings we normally celebrate birthdays. We’ll also be serving up opportunities for small group conversation and intergenerational engagement through game nights. And, not to worry, all the staples like the Advent Candlelight service and the Lovefeast are still on the menu!
Wednesday nights are a great time to get to know Pullen people. We encourage everyone, especially newcomers, to join us at The Table.
Wednesday night is a busy time for the Pullen family. We begin at 5:15 PM in Finlator Hall with a meal that provides valuable time to visit with fellow Pullenites. Dinner is available until at least 6 PM. After dinner we share information about church and community events followed by the naming of prayer concerns. At 6:30 PM adults either depart for Chancel Choir or remain to participate in a program that concludes at 7:30 PM as the children’s and youth programming ends. The program topics vary and typically include Bible study, social justice issues, theology or spirituality, matters of concern to our church family, international partner reports, and activities for fun and self-improvement.
The cost of the meal is $7 for adults and $4 for children K-5th grade. The family maximum is $24. Meal reservations are not required.
Wednesday nights are the best time to get to know Pullen people, so we encourage everyone, especially newcomers, to join us.

All of our youth meet to eat together. You may bring your own or purchase a meal in Finlator Hall for $7. Fellowship is an important part of this time together. We have announcements at 6:15 PM followed by our program at 6:30 PM. The program changes from week to week, but it is our aim for it to always be informative, conversational, and/or relevant to teenagers.
