World Communion Sunday Oct. 6
10am One Service. 11:30am Potluck lunch
The first Sunday in October is designated as World Communion Sunday, which celebrates our oneness in Christ with all our brothers and sisters around the world.  Paul tells us that we are to “discern the body” when we partake of Holy Communion, mindful that we note our relationship to all our brothers and sisters in Christ in the celebration.  One is not to go hungry while another is drunk! (I Cor. 11:21).  This is scandalous behavior opposed to the Way of Christ.  Thus it is appropriate that World Communion Sunday is also a time when we receive the annual Peace and Global Witness Offering as a way of continuing the ancient Christian practice of sharing what we have with brothers and sisters in need.

Volunteers are needed to help with set up, clean up and providing a side dish. Sign-up sheets are in the hall and inserted in bulletins.
