Communion Information: Those wishing to commune during online worship are invited to intentionally prepare for communion prior to the start of the service.  Prayerfully bring the elements of bread and wine or grape juice to where you will be worshipping. If you need assistance to obtain proper elements of bread, wine or grape juice, please contact the pastor.  Since the fullness of the sacrament is present in one of the elements, you may commune with bread or wine/grape juice and simply bow in prayer as the other element is raised in worship.  Please consume the elements or return them to the earth following the service.  The bulletin will also include a prayer for spiritual communion for those who are not participating in distance communion.  For more information about distance communion, see “Pastoral Letter on Communion During COVID.”
For information regarding Communion at In-Person Worship, see "Celebration of Communion & Initial Re-Opening".
