Announcements

  • Return to Communion

    Returning to the Lord’s Table

    We are happy to announce the reception of the Lord’s Supper will take place on our regular scheduled 1st, 3rd and 5th Sunday of every month starting this Sunday, August 2nd. Please read through the following list in order to have an idea of how communion will be distributed. You will find what is expected of those attending and what can be expected by those who will be serving. Communion will be distributed in a continual flow manner. If you will not be participating in the reception of communion but would like a blessing, please cross your arms across your chest when you approach the pastor. After the blessing you may bypass the elder distributing the individual cups and return to your seat.

    For those serving:

    • The pastor will communion himself and then change his gloves.
    • Everyone assisting in serving communion will be wearing a mask and gloves.
    • Pastor will stand centered between the communion rails distributing the host.
    • An elder will be behind each of the communion rails in which they will hand off an individual cup to the recipient. The elder will hold the cup on the rim.
    • If by chance the pastor’s hands, or an elder’s hands come into contact with anyone else’s hand during the distribution, they will immediately change their gloves before continuing with distributing communion to anyone else.
    • Use of the common cup is temporary suspended, as well as the practice of the pastor placing the host directly onto the tongue of recipient.

     

    For those receiving:

    • Everyone is to remain seated until an usher signals them to go up for communion.
    • Please try to maintain social distancing while walk up the center aisle.
    • There will be no kneeling at the communion rails.
    • We ask for those who are able to wear a mask to do so while walking up to receive communion and while they walk back to their seats.
    • When receiving the host from pastor, please cup your hand together so that the pastor may drop the host in your hands.
    • After receiving the host walk to the elder distributing the individual cups that on the side of the church in which you are seated.
    • When receiving an individual cup from an elder please do your best to only grab the bottom of the cup.
    • If you desire to have the nonalcoholic wine please indicate so to the elder so he may accommodate your need.
    • At the wall side of each communion rail there will be a plate to place your cup. There will also be a bottle of Hand Sanitizer. Please feel free to use after receiving communion.
    • After everyone has received communion the pastor will give the dismissal blessing to the whole congregation.
