This worship experience premieres on Sunday, March 7 at 10 am. The Communion table is often a place for teaching about God’s presence. But so often, there is something holy about gathering around tables for shared meals. The food that is eaten and the conversation that takes place are all reminders of God’s presence in the simple, ordinary moments that happen when God’s people gather for a time at the table together. The scripture for this week is Acts 2:42-47. This service is available here on the website, through the Herndon UMC YouTube channel, and on Herndon UMC’s Facebook page.
The sacrament of Holy Communion is a part of this service. As you prepare, in addition to a candle and symbol, gather together your Communion elements and place them in your worship space. In the Lent kit, there are small, single-serving cups with elements, but any food (e.g. bread or crackers) and drink (e.g. juice) will do.
As always, you are encouraged to add your voice to prayers and songs and stand as you are able. There is a bulletin to help you experience worship. It includes the week’s announcements, links, ongoing prayer concerns, and the order of worship.
Say hello in the chat. The chat on YouTube opens at 9:30 am; Facebook’s opens when the video begins. No matter what platform you prefer. Please let us know you are worshiping with us, who is there worshiping with you, and where you are. This can also be done by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
