We’re still worshiping!
We'll gather online even though we’ve closed our church building for now due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re building a #biggerTable and all are welcome – newcomers, members and friends (like our in-person worship, once we’re able to gather again).
Simple Preparations for Online, Home Worship
You may want to light a candle for worship.
We’ll celebrate Holy Communion even while we’re apart.
- For most people having the physical elements of communion available will mean a piece of bread or cracker and a cup of wine, grape juice or water. Gluten-free bread or crackers are also welcome.
- You don't need anything fancy to celebrate. Please, this isn't the time to joke on social media about your choice of wine or bread (a concern raised by our bishop).
- Jesus used the most common and basic foods to bless so that Holy Communion would be accessible to all.
During online worship, Pastor Jen will speak the comforting words, “In the night in which He was betrayed…”
- The bread and wine you have at home will be tangible signs of God's promise to be present in, with and under the elements of Holy Communion.
- We receive this meal and the forgiveness, grace and love it brings as an act of faith.
- We trust that God will be where God has promised to meet us, transcending physical boundaries during the pandemic.
