I mentioned last Sunday that we would resume celebrating the Lord’s Supper on the first Sunday of each month, beginning August 2nd. We will be doing a couple of things differently so as to protect everyone as best we can.  The first thing we will do is have those who prepare the elements wear latex gloves and masks.  We will also have the servers do the same.  We will not be passing the plates as we have traditionally done, so only the servers will be touching them with their gloves on.  The servers will walk down each row and those who want to receive the elements will hold the palm of their hand up and the server will place the element in their hands.

One other thing that we will do for those who feel a little uncomfortable in a gathering where everyone isn’t wearing a mask – during the 10:45 service, we will use the youth room (in the building behind the main church) for overflow and everyone who comes to this gathering will be required to wear a mask.  The service will be watched on YouTube, but then the sacrament will be observed with a server distributing the elements in the same way we’re doing in the main building.

We have all missed having the Lord’s Supper, and so we hope that in taking these measures, more folks will be encouraged to come out and celebrate this sacrament with us – one that not only depicts our union with Christ, but also our union with each other in the body of Christ.
