Sunday, September 29, 6:00-7:30 p.m.
Family Life Center, Garrison Chapel
FEAST is a new kind of dinner church program that aims to build bridges among young adults from different churches and even different denominations in the Austin area. FEAST is based on the most ancient form of Christian communal worship: the love feast. Before the first cathedral was built, early Christians gathered in their homes to share a meal and talk about what exactly it meant to belong to the Kingdom of God. These meetings will focus on creating meaningful and personal interactions among individuals seeking more connection and engagement in a faith-interested atmosphere.
These are the same kinds of conversations FEAST will explore:
- When is violence justified?
- Is there a Christian case for medical marijuana?
- Is the death penalty Christian? Un-Christian? Neither?
- What kind of governments should Christians support? What kind should they resist?
These aren’t easy questions and, in fact, our goal isn’t to provide clean or easy answers. Rather, we want you to come and engage in these tough conversations with people you might not encounter or engage with in your day to day lives but who, like you, want to share a meal and learn about someone else’s journey. FUMC Austin invites you to join us for an inaugural dinner church event on Sunday, September 29 at 6:00 p.m. in Garrison Chapel of the Family Life Center.
Join us to FEAST on the Spirit, on Scripture, on good food, and on great conversation. Registration is encouraged.
