The Open Table is a group which was formed within North Charleston United Methodist Church, located in the Park Circle Community of North Charleston, SC, which is open to all. The Open Table is a community that embraces as a gift the diversity of our neighborhood and the world. We celebrate our human family’s diversity of race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, faith history, political leanings, economic status, marital status, physical and mental abilities, education and any other difference, real or perceived. We affirm that all people are created in the image of God. As beloved children of God, we are all worthy of God‘s love. We believe that no one is incompatible with the love and saving grace of Jesus Christ. We welcome full inclusion to all people into the life of our church. We proclaim this statement of welcome to all and acknowledge the reconciliation which must take place, as many have known the pain of exclusion and discrimination in church and in society. We vow to be a table, a community, always truly open for all in hope that here love will create change.
