John Pavlovitz – Sunday, October 1

Carl GreeneEvents

This news is too good not to share! St Marks Church has received copies of John Pavlovitz’s not-yet-released book A Bigger Table – and a copy can be yours for just $10. We will use this book as our sermon series during October, so you’ll love having this book before any of your friends – in fact it isn’t available until October 16. Get your copy this Sunday!

What is “A Bigger Table”? Pastor John invites readers to join him on the journey to find or build a church that is big enough for everyone. He speaks clearly into the heart of the issues the Christian community has been earnestly wrestling with: LGBT inclusion, gender equality, racial tensions, and global concerns. A Bigger Table: Building Messy, Authentic, Hopeful Spiritual Community asks if organized Christianity can find a new way of faithfully continuing the work Jesus began two thousand years ago, where everyone gets a seat.

But wait – there’s more! John will be with us in Chattanooga on Sunday, October 1 to talk about A Bigger Table and his journey- one that started in Philadelphia years ago, led him to pastor in the United Methodist Church, getting fired from the UMC and led into writing some of the most important blog posts of our times at

Join us at St Elmo United Methodist Church at 7pm on October 1 for this amazing opportunity to be with John, learn from him and ask him your most burning questions.
