This fall we'll join together after the service for a simple lunch of bread and soup on the Sundays that we take communion together (Sept. 3, Oct. 8, Nov. 1, and Dec. 3).  Our hope is to deepen our understanding of the sacrament of communion by enjoying a meal together after taking the bread and wine, much as the disciples and the early church might have done. 

If you'd like to help with set up or food preparation, contact Youth Pastor Michael Bowyer.
