We are currently offering an outdoor modified Communion Service the last Wednesday of each month at 7pm on the church lawn.
As we continue to respond to COVID-19 safety, we are trying new ways to share together in this Holy Sacrament.
Each month may be different.
The service will also be available via Zoom only. If you join remotely, we suggest that you prepare your own sacred space with some type of juice or other drink, some bread or food item, and possibly a candle.
In respect for this Holy Sacrament and the importance of sharing together at the same time, we have intentionally chosen not to record this worship service to Facebook.
Communion is served every Sunday at NPUMC during the 10:45am worship service.
Our table is open to everyone.
We invite you with these words:
“Christ invites to his Table all who repent and come to receive
Every color of the earth, every corner of the globe
Old or young, You Are Welcome
Able to come on your own two feet, needing the help of canes, crutches
prosthetics, the strong arm of a neighbor, or needing the elements
brought to you, You Are Welcome
Whatever your sexual orientation, however you are dressed, you are welcome
If you feel you are worthy You Are Welcome
If you feel you are unworthy, Christ Jesus welcomes you to His table.”
To ensure that everyone can share together in this meal, only grape juice
and gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free communion bread is served.
Here is the recipe we use if you have other food concerns you need to consider.
We receive by intinction, which means that when you come to receive you will be
handed a piece of bread with the words “the body of Christ, broken for you.” You
are then invited to take that piece of bread and dip it in the chalice (cup) as
the server says “the blood of Christ, shed for you.”
