World Communion Sunday

The first Sunday in October, October 4 this year, is World Communion Sunday. This has become a time when Christians in every culture break bread and pour the cup to remember and affirm Christ as the Head of the Church. On that day, we remember that we are part of the whole body of believers. Whether shared in a grand cathedral, a mud hut, outside on a hilltop, in a meetinghouse, in a storefront, or in your home, Christians celebrate the communion liturgy in as many ways as there are congregations. During a “normal” year, we would celebrate in our sanctuary mindful that we are interconnected with Christians around the world. Even though we could not see them, we knew that we were bound together by our common commitment to Jesus as Lord. And this year, we will follow our tradition and practice. We will celebrate the Supper in the safety and privacy of our own homes. As you prepare for our Sunday service on YouTube, select some bread and have a cup to drink at the appropriate time during our service.
