Miranda Johnson // Assistant Pastor   I've worked in the healthcare field for the past 16 years, anything from a registration clerk, to nursing and even a clinic manager for a rural health facility.  My family and I found our home at The Table. What I enjoy most is connecting with families outside of simply Sunday Morning Service but rather in the community at softball field, basketball court and livestock show ring.  When I’m not cheering my kids on at one of their many extra curricular activities you might find a one of our local coffee shops enjoying a cup of joe or maybe taking a stroll around our beautiful little town.

Matthew Manera // Worship Leader + Deacon at The Table   Music Teacher at STREAM Charter School in Oroville  I love The Table because it is US! It is our family, our home, our tribe. I love that we know how to take care of each other, teach each other, and learn from each other. We want to love our community. We want to love our town. And most of all, we want to love God! I am so excited to be one member in this family, and with our new home and building, I am excited to see how it grows. There is room for anyone at The Table.  In my free time I love to watch the A's, go to the movies, and play my guitar. I love listening to Podcasts, and audiobooks. A good documentary, a good comic book, a good tv show, excite me. I love a good story, what's yours?

Secretary of the Board + Deacon at The Table Church   Adjunct Chemistry Instructor at Butte College and CSU, Chico  It’s said that the Church isn’t the building, it’s the people and I love The Table because the people are incredible. When I go to church, small group, or a service project I feel like I’m with family. It’s so good to be part of a group of people who are passionate about loving our neighborhood well and having a lot of fun together.  My favorite hobbies are cooking, reading, swimming, and watching Survivor.

Shelley Manera // Treasurer   I've worked as a childcare professional and a volunteer leader in activities around Oroville, Chico, and, of course, Thermalito!  I love connecting with people at The Table! And even though sometimes it's hard to reach out to someone I've never met, I have never once regretted it!  My favorite hobbies are writing, crafting, and music. If you like those things too, hit me up and let's make a small group out of it! I'll make t-shirts! And I do not say that lightly.
