Welcome Table Bread Sharing Service

We can officially give thanks for a full year in our new church home as we celebrate our annual bread sharing ceremony, or Bread Communion. This is a service for all the generations of our church community. Bread is called the “staff of life,” because it is a basic life-sustaining food. I think it safe to say that some form of bread exists in just about every culture. Perhaps your family inherited a tradition of a particular type of bread from your ancestors. Or maybe you enjoy bread from an ancestry you choose to claim.

This Sunday you are invited to bring a loaf of bread, preferably cut in bite size pieces, to share with the congregation. Our favorite breads usually have a story. If the bread you bring has significance to your own family, or to your ethnic, cultural or religious heritage, you are invited to share that story during the service. If you bring bread that is gluten free, vegan, etc. you may wish to label it for those who have special dietary considerations. Let us welcome one another to the table with story, song, and bread to share.
