It has been tradition for our church to take the Lord’s Supper on Palm Sunday for many years. This year will be no different…except it will be different. On Sunday, April 5th we will be hosting a Family Lord’s Supper Service via our online broadcasts at 9:30am and 11am. What that means is families will be taking the Lord’s Supper together in their own homes, while being led by Pastor Tim during our online broadcasts. This is a chance for our Church Family to join together, no matter where you are located and worship together in this special way.
There are a couple of ways you can do this as a family:
- Bake your own Communion Bread at home. This is a great opportunity for a fun family project where kids and parents can join together in baking their own Communion Bread. Below is Pam Maynard’s unleavened bread recipe. Bake your own bread, then all you need is some juice and you are all set.
1 cup unbleached flour
1/3 cup cup water, room temperature
1/4 tsp salt
Combine the flour and salt. Add enough water to make a dough that will clean the sides of the bowl and can be gathered into a ball. Turn out onto a lightly floured board and knead 10 minutes. Shape into a ball and cut in half. Roll each piece out until very thin. Place on an ungreased baking sheet and bake in a preheated 500 degree oven for 5 minutes or until lightly colored, blistered, and crisp.
- Use Crackers as a bread substitute. If you don’t have the time or means to bake your own bread then substitute the bread with crackers. Many missionaries in the field use whatever they have at their disposal to partake in the Lord’s Supper together.
The main point is for us all to worship together in taking the Lord’s Supper. It isn’t about whether or not you have bread, crackers, grape juice or Kool-aide. What is important is the meaning behind those items and that is Jesus Christ!
We love you and cannot wait to worship with you in person, but in the meantime let’s continue to be the church activated and mobilized in our homes and neighborhoods!
