We will celebrate World Communion Sunday by inviting you to a

"walk-through" communion service in our Worship Center

between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m. on October 4.

 

Here’s the way it will work: 

Howard and Lynn will consecrate the elements and begin serving Communion at 8:30 a.m. Everyone will need to sign up in advance online for a time-slot for you and your family.  (You also have an opportunity to indicate whether you need a wheelchair.)

Please wear your masks, park in the west parking lot, and form a line at the south sidewalk near the swingset (in front of the Youth Barn). You will enter the building from a door on the south end of the worship center and exit the building via a door on the north end. 

Individuals or family groups will be asked to remain at a distance of 6 feet from one another as you wait in line and as you receive communion. (There will markers to help with proper distancing.) Sadly, we have to ask you to refrain from hugging or shaking hands. Please plan to remain at a 6-foot distance from other family groups the whole time. 

As the servers, Howard and Lynn will wear gloves and masks. Lynn will hand you a piece of bread and Howard will hand you an individual cup of juice. You will get to hear Donna play the piano while you are inside the Worship Center. 

No seating will be available in the Worship Center, and you’ll be guided to walk directly out of the Worship Center after receiving the bread and cup. When you exit, please go directly to your vehicle and refrain from congregating, hugging, shaking hands, etc. 

Restrooms and water fountains will not be available, and no other part of the building besides the Worship Center will be accessible. 

The Lovestream will continue at 10:00 AM as usual.  We hope this sounds like the grace-filled opportunity it’s meant to be! Please do not feel badly if you’re not comfortable returning to the building right now. We will certainly understand and don’t want anyone to feel pressured to participate. Our desire is simply to see your faces and give you the opportunity to receive the grace of Christ through the sacrament of Holy Communion. Remember to sign up in advance.
