Today’s Communion

  • We will offer the Sacrament of Holy Communion in each service, giving everyone the opportunity to partake
  • People will be ushered up on the lectern side first, then the pulpit side, so that we have only one line.
  • We will serve by continuous distribution to help with distancing.
  • Those who do not wish to commune or are not comfortable communing at this time will be free not to do so, with absolutely no stigma.
  • Those who are distributing the Sacrament will clean their hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer immediately before distribution.
  • Communicants will receive the wafer in an open palm.
  • The common cup will not be used for a time.

Individual cups will be spaced out in the trays
