Welcome

World Communion Sunday and Monday

Sunday October 5 is World Communion Sunday. I would guess many or even most of us have heard of this time when churches throughout the country and even world take time during worship to share in the Lord’s Supper. The goal is to be a part of one’s own church community celebrating Communion on the same day as so many other’s share in this sacrament. While talking about the special times past World Communion Sunday’s have brought it was realized that a very large part of the community that calls the building of Shawnee Presbyterian Church home are not being welcomed or even invited to the Lord’s Table.

World Communion Sunday was first introduced by a Presbyterian Church, so why not add to the celebration adding World Communion Monday. Every Monday evening our church building is full of Boy Scouts and their parents and families and Vocal Standard Chorus (women’s chorus) rehearses in the Fellowship Hall. With these regular groups and the various other people who find their place at the church each Monday it only makes sense to make available Communion to all who come through our doors on Monday as well.

All are welcome to come and share in Communion together. Each group meeting at the church will receive an invitation sharing with them the openness of this meaningful table and sacrament. The table will be set up just inside the main doors of the church. Communion will be shared with those who choose to come to the table and not pressured for anyone to participate. This open and welcoming table may bring questions about the faith and traditions of our church that have not had the right setting to be asked before. Please share about this time of communion with your friends and/or family who for whatever reason have not shared in Communion and would like to reconnect with Jesus and the church who shares the fellowship of this holy and precious remembrance of our connection with our Lord and Savior.

The Communion Table will be available Monday October 7 from 5:45 to 7:15pm.

In Ministry Together,
