Communion This Sunday

By Pastor Bill
We Will Lift Up the Cup and the Bread We Will Break…
…remembering Your love. We were fallen from grace, but You took on our shame, and nailed it to a Cross.” (Mercy, by Matt Redman)
This Sunday we will remember what Jesus has done for us by observing communion at the conclusion of our two services. This will be the first time we have done this since resuming “In-Person” services, and we are very much looking forward to this; also having those who are viewing the live stream join us as well!
For those who will be attending “In-Person”:
As you enter the Auditorium, you will see a table with pre-filled cups/wafers. Everything is in one pre-packaged unit, in other words, the wafer comes with the cup. Take one from the table and when you take your seat, place your cup in the communion cup holder located on the back of the seat directly in front of you. When it comes time to receive communion, you will take the cup from the holder, and peel back a top layer of film to gain access to the wafer. You will then peel off the second layer of film to gain access to the cup.
For those who will be viewing the live stream and joining us from home:
Please be sure to have the elements on hand prior to the start of the service. The last time we observed communion was back in April when all services were online only. We published the recipe that we use for the bread here at Five Forks, for those interested in baking their own, and are doing the same this time, here are the ingredients and baking instructions:
4 cups flour
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 pound butter (1 stick)
1 cup milk (whole preferred but can use other)
Mix dry ingredients together. Cut in butter.
Add milk (warmed in the microwave for 30 seconds or so).
Knead until smooth and elastic.
Roll out on a pastry sheet or cutting board.  Place on a baking pan.
Cut in squares with a pizza cutter, etc. Punch with a fork.
Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.
As your Pastors, we are very much looking forward to joining with you this Sunday, reflecting on and remembering Jesus’ sacrifice for us!
