One thing that I have missed immensely during these past months is the regular practice of Holy Communion. This special meal that reminds us of the death of Jesus and unites us together as the body of Christ is an essential practice of the people called Methodist. John Wesley was known to celebrate communion daily, early Methodists took communion weekly, and here on the American frontier Methodist pioneers received communion every time the Circuit Rider came around (leading to our current practice of once a month!)
While, we have held a weekly come-and-go communion during the pandemic, I’m excited to share that this coming Sunday, we’ll resume our monthly celebration of the sacrament. During our 9:00 a.m. chapel service, we will celebrate Holy Communion in the sanctuary. We will serve communion at the rail, using our regular cups and with servers wearing masks and gloves for your safety.
