*Added Workshop: AM17 - Presented by the Welcome Table Team of New Providence Presbyterian Church

Welcome Table is a community-wide mission of hospitality which brings together volunteers from several churches to serve a hot meal to all the “angels” who walk in every Tuesday and Thursday evenings. It serves guests from a variety of situations and feeds people who are hungry for food, fellowship, convenience or a combination of all these. The workshop will give resources to those interesting in starting a ministry to feed the hungry in body and spirit. It will be led by the folks who started it and still are deeply involved in offering hospitality to strangers.

All events are at Maryville College unless otherwise stated.  Child Care is available both days at New Providence Presbyterian Church (NPPC).
