Communion for online worship

We share Holy Communion in our online services the first Sunday of the month, and we invite you to join us at home.

Before the time of the service, you will want to prepare some bread — a slice or a small loaf of any kind of bread. In some parts of the world, tortilla, rice cake or cassava are used as this element, which is defined not as a wheat product but as the most common food of the people. Let it be something that you by yourself, or with others in your house, may break and share. Prepare a cup or cups of juice — perhaps grape or cranberry — or whatever you have on hand. We believe that Jesus makes the common things holy!

Set these elements in the living room or kitchen or wherever you experience worship electronically with the FHC community. Perhaps you want to put them on a lovely cloth or fabric that reminds you of a special time or a person deeply connected with you in the communion of saints. Perhaps you will light a candle or place a flower or plant or the photograph of someone you wish to bring into the circle of faith beside the bread and the cup.

Thank you for your preparation.
