All are welcome at the Lord’s Table for Communion!

Both wine(dark red) and grape juice(gold)are available to intinct(dip)your communion wafer in.  Christ is fully present in both the bread and the wine/juice.  If for whatever reason you wish to only receive the bread, please come up as normal, receive the wafer, and simply walk past the communion assistant.  If you would like to only receive the wine/juice, please speak with Pastor BEFORE the service begins.  Gluten free communion wafers are also available.

Sharing the Peace:  There are many ways to share the peace, including handshakes, fist/elbow bumps, speaking peace, hugs etc.  Please participate in this ritual in whatever way you are most comfortable.

Midweek Lent Activities:  Please join us each Wednesday for a potluck at 6 pm, activities beginning with devotions at 7 pm. This week’s (March11) Bible Story will focus on the raising of Lazarus.  Midweek Lenten offerings will be split between the Little Free Food Pantry/Library here at New Life and the Sunrise Community Food Pantry
