During this week’s online worship we will be celebrating communion. We will remember again this month once that even when we are not physically in shared space together, we are still part of a community together.

If you weren’t able to pick up prepared communion elements from the church or if you don’t live in the Des Moines metro area but worship with us online, you are welcome to participate in communion by preparing some juice or wine or even some water and some bread or crackers and to have them available for worship.

I would encourage you this week to worship online sometime during the 9:00-10:00 a.m. hour on Sunday morning, so that as many of us that can do so are sharing communion at the same time.  If you are not able to worship online on Sunday morning, I would still invite and encourage you to celebrate communion during the online service whenever you are able to watch it.

Communion is a part of the worship experience and should be an outgrowth of worship and as a “Response to the Word”.  However if you are unable to worship online at all this week, you are welcome to use the liturgy provided, which is an adaptation of what we will use in worship this week.

In whatever way you worship this week and in whatever way you celebrate communion, May the Lord be with you…
