Palm Sunday – Special Lord’s Supper Service
April 5, 2020 @ 9:30am & 11am
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!

This is SO wonderful!! If we have to social distance, we can still be together.
Love all my FCB peeps!
It was great to be “in Church” with all of you the last two Sundays. Looking forward to Palm Sunday and, of course, Easter Sunday, when the air waves will be packed with ‘Live Streamers’ celebrating our LORD’s glorious resurrection!! Wed pm Pastor Tim’s bible study has been so timely, coming to us from his manicured garden this week. Let’s all keep it up, as with GOD’s guidance and steady hands we WILL survive.—Jim n Nan Doud

Pastor Tim, so happy to you join and Brian, Choir, etc. on Sundays. This has been an awakening for me, to see everything closed and few people out and about. The people in a panic and hoarding paper products and groceries, I can’t help but imagine how it will be at the rapture, when people disappear altogether and still others will be left behind, not to mention the plagues that will soon come after the rapture. I also get , but comparatively speaking, a small glimpse of how persecuted Christians must have to worship. I know every Sunday morning is pure joy listening to your sermon and Brian’s music. Charlie and I look forward to it every week. We will be celebrating the Lord’s Supper with you. We will have matzah crackers and grape juice. Hope all is well with everyone.
Thank you so we can share communion at home with our family. God bless you Paster Tim. Stay safe and healthy. Until we meet again.
Yours in Christ,
My wife Barbie used Pam’s recipe for our bread last night – a tribute to the lasting memory of Pam. So looking forward when we meet again as a church family, but at least we have the technology to celebrate on-line from our great leadership on Sunday and Wednesday.
