‘I was quickly approaching burnout’

For seven years, Nick Pickrell, organizer of The Open Table in Kansas City, Missouri, has been hustling to keep the new worshiping community afloat. There was a lot of grant writing and developing — not to mention the community’s antiracism training business. Finally, last summer, Pickrell was able to take a break, thanks to Sabbath & Sabbatical Grants from the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)’s 1001 New Worshiping Communities movement.

All are welcome at The Open Table

Bringing rich and poor, black and white, young and old together in communion at the same table is the mission of The Open Table, a 1001 New Worshiping Community of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) planted two years ago by Second Presbyterian Church in Kansas City, Missouri.
