Our month-long Birthday Video Contest ended last Friday. We've been celebrating our one-year birthday with a contest, asking you to send in video stories of how the Table is impacting you or your church. We've seen some amazing stories and now it's time to pick a random winner.
The winner of the iPad is... Patrick Dierschke of PaulAnn Baptist Church in San Angelo, Texas. Check out his video:
Watch Patrick's video (3:25)
Second prize is an iPod Shuffle that goes to... Angela Bengtson of Zion Lutheran Church in Buffalo, Minn. Check out her video:

A runner up will also receive some Table swag.
Congratulations to the winners and thanks for celebrating with us. While the contest is over, we always encourage you to share your stories (video or not) on our Tumblr site.
Today's your last chance to enter our Birthday Video Contest. We've had some great entries come in and we're excited to announce a winner. But you've still got time. Not much time, but a little.
If the idea of making a video sounds overwhelming, don't worry. Your video can be quick and simple. We even have some helpful tips on making videos. Check out this short, simple video from Josh in Bismark, N.D., talking about small groups:
That's awesome. And Josh just picked up a camera and talked. You could easily do that on your lunch break!
Share a story of how God is working through the Table in your church or in your life. We want to hear about the cool things happening in your churches (like Patrick's story of getting support through baptism or Melissa's story of following through when she say's she'll pray). That's what this contest is all about—these stories are the best way to encourage people to try the Table at your church. So do it to encourage your fellow congregation to get more out of the Table.
Oh, and you could also win a new iPad.
Enter today. It's your last chance.
It's a great example of the church truly being the body.
Seeing the Table in action—and God at work—is so inspiring. Here's another story about the Serve App coming through in a pinch:
Watch Angela's full video for even more examples of how her church is using the Table. This is also another entry in our Birthday Video Contest. Be sure to create your own video and share your story soon—our contest ends next week.
We also talked with Angela a few months back about how her church launched the Table and how it's going. Be sure to read the case study for Zion Lutheran Church.
One year ago today we launched publicly. We're celebrating with a little contest, collecting stories about how the Table is impacting you. Make a video sharing your favorite Table story and you could win an iPad.
The first story we received is from Pat Herlitz, the pastor of a small church in Texas:
One year ago this week the Table launched publicly. We sat there on the edge of our seats, watching churches sign up and our map begin to fill. It was pretty cool.
But over the past year what's really made us excited, more than the number of churches or the pins in the map, is the stories. God is working in and through churches and the Table is enabling people to connect with one another, to serve together, to pray for each other--to be the body of Christ.
So we decided to celebrate our birthday by celebrating these stories. We're thrilled to announce the Birthday Video Contest. All you have to do is make a video sharing your story and we'll enter you in a random drawing to win an iPad or other cool prizes.
Learn more about the contest and hear some of the stories from our team:
