In about thirty seconds, we’ve changed from being a congregation who meets in a building into a congregation who meets online. I am surprised at how quickly we adapted. Even though the people of Faith are socially distant from each other, we continue to have a unified purpose!
It is important that we continue to do something on the first day of the week. The Sabbath Day is “kept holy” when we bring ourselves to worship at an appointed hour. Christians worship together on Sunday because it is the day of the week that Christ rose from the dead. Sharing the Lord’s Supper on the Lord’s Day has been a staple for worship since the early days of the church.
Here at Faith, there will be a time of change. We will change from being a community who shares Holy Communion every Sunday, to a community who only shares the sacrament on special Sundays like Easter.
If the stay home order continues, the next time we encourage our members and visitors to share online communion will be during the 10:07 AM Service on Pentecost Sunday, May 31, 2020. In the meantime, our services will highlight the Word of God and our response to God’s Word.
The Lord be with you.
