A video about The Big Table’s mission was selected as a finalist in the 1001 New Worshiping Communities video contest hosted by the Presbyterian Church, (U.S.A). Voters helped a panel of judges select the top five videos out of 35 entries.
The church planned to give the winner of the “What’s Your Story” contest a $10,000 prize for its worshiping community. The second and third place prizes were $5,000 and $2,500 respectively.
Commissioners planned to vote on the videos on Saturday June 14, at the 221st General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church, (U.S.A.)
