Celebrating Holy Communion on Pentecost Sunday (May 31st)

As we did on Easter Sunday we will celebrate Holy Communion virtually. The service will be live streamed beginning at 10:00 am. You are invited to have bread/crackers and wine/juice available. Following the words of institution and The Lord's Prayer, the words "The body of Christ given for you" will be spoken at which time we will eat the bread together and then following the words "The blood of Christ shed for you" we will drink the wine together. Once worship is concluded, the sacramental part of the service will be deleted reflecting our Bishop's guidance.

I look forward to the day when we will once again celebrate this holy meal in our sanctuary.

Yours in Christ
Pastor Tim Posyluzny

Lanyards are available and waiting

Wearing a lanyard showing our names help visitors and new comers as well as each one of us, should another worshiper's name slip our mind, is all about hospitality. When we are able to gather for worship you will find yours in your mailbox. Please wear them. Thank you Ed and Sabine for completing this project.
