A number of you have raised questions about serving Communion during this time of worshiping remotely. Earlier I told you that at this time celebrating this sacrament was not advised. Please see the attached links…one from the Office of the General Assembly, found here , (which says you may serve communion) and the other link from the Association of Stated Clerks that will give you the information supporting this change, found here.
With the spread of the Covid-19 virus and the Shelter in Place directive that many are experiencing we have received word that celebrating the Lord’s Supper may be celebrated without violating the Book of Order. More than ever we need to be reminded of the ability to be fed not only by the Word rightly preached but the celebration of this sacrament. Thank you for all you are doing for the people of God as you continue to be creative in carrying out the ministry of Christ.
Joy Myers, Stated Clerk
