The Open Table KC is a dinner church which gathers on the lower level of Second Presbyterian on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month from 6:30-8:00 p.m. for a meal, music, and conversation. We continue to partner with Second, our parent congregation, and are part of the Presbyterian Church (USA)’s 1001 New Worshiping Communities movement. Our gatherings are curated to integrate contemplation and activism, featuring locally-sourced guest teachers and a dialogical format. We believe God welcomes all of us to the table, no matter where we’re from, what faith we do (or don’t) practice, our race, economic status, or sexual orientation. In response to God’s extravagant welcome, as a church community we work to be actively anti-racist and affirming to people who are LGBTQIA. You can learn more about The Open Table on our website.
The Open Table also provides trainings about racism, organizing and de-escalation which create space for dialogue, acknowledge systemic cultural sins, and offer strategies and skills to challenge institutional barriers. To learn more about our anti-racism work and trainings, visit our website.
We believe in a community where everyone belongs,
a city where all have the power to pursue their dreams and ambitions,
and a people who are committed to each other’s liberation,
until all are at the table together.
