Comox Valley’s St. George’s hosts new “Open Table” potluck

Event planned to facilitate thought-provoking discussion and build community

Rev. Ryan Slifka announced that St. George’s United Church is hosting its second “Open Table” potluck and spiritual discussion on Tuesday, Feb. 18, 5:30-7 p.m.

The topic for this month’s group discussion is “Community & Spirituality.”

There is no cost to attend, but registration is requested at www.stgeorgesunited.com/opentable/ or calling 250-334-4961. Attendees are asked to please bring a side dish to accompany the meat and vegetarian main dishes provided by St. George’s. Childcare is provided for $2 per child.

Last month, despite the snow, more than 30 people gathered to share a meal, meet new people, and watch a brief video, Love Made Flesh (Brene Brown) that sparked a healthy discussion among participants.

Located in the heart of downtown Courtenay at 505 6th Street, St. George’s United Church is a spiritually vibrant, inclusive, justice-seeking community of faith that has been changing lives in the Comox Valley for over a century. Its vision is to be a Christian church that is a beacon of God’s love and hope in the community, doing so through unconditional welcome, spiritual transformation, and reaching out in love for the common good.

The regular Sunday service is at 10:30 a.m., followed by a coffee social in the fellowship hall.

Families with young children are very welcome. St. George’s has a diverse group of more than 30 young children who participate in the Children’s Church while their parents and grandparents remain in the main service.
