Lent: Assist in preparing communion in your community of faith


communion
Yesterday was Palm Sunday. This is the holiest of all weeks. How will you remember the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus? More importantly, how will a first time guest remember the way your congregation remembers Jesus?  

Our church has an open communion policy and offers the preparation of communion to volunteers. (Not every church does.) Most likely Holy Communion will be served sometime this week. Depending on a church tradition, either on Easter Sunday, Maundy Thursday or on Good Friday, Holy Communion most likely will be served "in remembrance" of the life, death, resurrection, ascension and soon coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Lent activity:

Volunteer to assist in preparing communion, taking time to pray for the elements to bring the congregation into remembrance of the body and blood of Jesus.
