Knowing that many congregations today do not have an appointed pastor with the privileges to preside at the communion table — and knowing that these congregations long for the spiritual nurture of eucharist just as much as any other follower of Christ — the following liturgy has been adapted to allow pastors to consecrate elements for another lay-led congregation. 

Find the liturgy

As an additional resource, members of the Cabinet will take turns leading a virtual worship service with communion on the first Sunday of the month. The services will take place at 8 a.m. via Zoom. The schedule appears above.

Any churches/faith communities that do not currently have someone appointed to preside at communion and who cannot make arrangements with a nearby church to extend their table as described above are encouraged to send someone to this service via phone or computer to both receive communion and have elements blessed for the regular worship service on that same day.  

Please use the liturgy (link above) when sharing consecrated bread and juice with congregations without a presider. 

How to participate 

Each month there will be a different  Zoom link. The link for the next upcoming service will be posted here:
