World Communion Sunday


For I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, ‘This is my body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.’  In the same way he took the cup also, after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.’  For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. - 1 Corinthians 11:23-26 (NRSV)

Directives:  Communion is one of the ways we connect to God and one another.  Communion is a means of grace.  You are invited to serve one another communion.  One of you will start off as the server and the other as the receiver.  Server:  Break off a piece of bread and offer it, saying, “The body of Christ broken for you.”  And then offer him/her the cup by saying, “The blood of Christ poured out for you.”  Receiver:  receive the bread and dip it in the cup.  Then switch places.  The one who was serving now receives.  The one who has received now serves.

Alternative:  Breads of the World on a Table with chairs around it, where people can serve one another.  

Supplies Needed: Loaves of Bread on Plates (Click for bread ideas), Chalices of Grape Juice, Cloths (Optional:  Hand Sanitizer, prayers in different languages, World Communion Liturgy.)

I would also recommend incorporating Global Greetings:
