Dinner Church: Southern Soul Food

It's Dinner Church! Doors open at 4:30, dinner is at 5, and service at 6! Jamin will be talking about how there are many different things trying to influence our beliefs as Christians and that this is a common way in which the enemy works. Rather than create another another religion to capture people, he often works within Christianity and takes us a different direction from there.

1208's Mobile Food Bank

1208's Mobile Food Bank

1208GREENWOOD is teaming up with Compassionate Ministries of Jackson County to distribute food the fourth Sunday of every month following our dinner church services. *There is a chance that food distribution will start earlier than 7:00 on some nights, so we'd suggest waiting for service to dismiss.*

If you would like to use the mobile food bank, then you will want to take a number at 4:30pm when our doors open and hang onto it until the end of service when we distribute food. Numbers are handed out on a first-come-first-serve basis. We hand out these numbers because our mobile food bank has limited supplies and we want you to know at the beginning of service if you can expect to receive food at the end of it. 

If you leave after receiving a number and are not back when your number is called, your food will be given to someone else. The rules of our mobile food bank will most likely evolve as we learn how to best implement it.

Finger of God 2 Tour

Finger of God 2 Tour

Grab a free ticket and then join our staff to go see the documentary "Finger of God 2" out in Troy. Directed by Will Hacker, Finger of God 2 comes 10 years after Darren Wilson’s original Finger of God, which was the first film of its kind and launched a new type of faith-based filmmaking. In this sequel, Will goes on his own journey around the world asking the question, what is the point of miracles? He films with the Taliban in the Middle East, drug addicts in California, gets smuggled into the underground church in China, films with a rock star in a bar in Northern Ireland, and faces down a Muslim king in Africa. More than simply seeing God move in powerful ways, Will discovers the very heart of a God who relentlessly pursues his children, and is worth giving up everything for.

Dinner Church Demo #4

At this point, we will no longer be holding Sunday morning service. While our official launch takes place September 9th, we will be demoing our new service the two Sunday's before it (August 26th and September 2nd). To keep food simple for these events, we will be getting a bunch of Little Caesar's Pizzas. A few bucks go a long way if you're able to put some money in the donation box when you come to service! These last two demos will help us make sure we have everything in order for our official launch on September 9th!

Dinner Church Demo!

Since we already have a potluck on the first week of the month, we thought we would hold another Dinner Church demo! Because of this, Sunday morning service will NOT be held. Instead, doors open at 4:30pm, our communal potluck is served at 5 and service is held right at 6. Come check it out for yourselves and get ready to serve in the areas you signed up for! Jamin will be preaching this week on the topic of Why We Practice Peace-Making in order to remind us of the importance of this avenue in the dinner church model.

Fasting Through August

Throughout the month of August, we are asking 1208ers to consider fasting once a week on behalf of our new Dinner Church Direction. Please consider joining us in this important spiritual effort as we grow in relationship with God and tackle spiritual strongholds in Jackson. You may choose the day of the week you fast and set your own rules as to how you do so.

Dinner Church Shirts

Dinner Church Shirts

Those of you who ordered a dinner church shirt will be able to pick it up as early as our July 29th service. If you are unable to pay for the shirt, we give it to you as a gift. If you are able to pay for it, we originally asked for $4 a shirt. This is still a helpful donation, but a few extra fees have brought the actual price to about $6 a shirt. Therefore, while it is not necessary, if you are willing to give a little extra to help balance out our budget, it would be very helpful!

Dinner Church Retreat

  • Morley, MI, 49336 United States (map)

With so much ahead of us, we know it would do us some good to get out and have a little fun together as well as take some time to pray for what's ahead of us. All are welcome to join us in Morley, MI for this special trip, including your kids. If you're interested, please let us know if (1) you plan on bringing a tent for yourself or your family; (2) if you need overnight lodging; or (3) if you only plan on joining us for that Saturday.

This event is free, but if you are able to donate $10 or so, it'll go a long way in providing for meals. While many will plan on arriving Friday evening, Jamin will be up there much earlier if you'd like to come sooner. (Click the heading of this event for more details)…

If you haven't indicated to us that you plan on going, please do so here.
