Worship and Music

Worship is central to all we are as God’s people and is seen as a vital opportunity to strengthen our relationship with God.  It is also a time for us to express our faith and witness that faith to others.

During this time please set your home altar with communion bread and wine/juice for the sacrament.  Pastor Erik will bless it during the worship time. 

If you'd like to make your own communion bread, here are a couple recipes:

These recipes make quite a bit.  You may want to cut them in half or so.  If you have bread left over after the Zoom service, enjoy eating it or give it to the birds in your yard returning it to the earth where it all began. As you make your bread discuss fond memories you have of taking communion, of your first communion, and what it means in your life. 

Beautifully Designed Bread

The design for this bread is beautiful and easy to do; however, I wasn't that taken with the flavor, but I used the design on other recipes.

Two Gluten free recipes

Hope made one using King Arthur Flour Easy to Prepare Gluten Free Pancake Mix putting it into a 9 x 13 pan and baking it.  Then she cut it into small squares for Pastor to hand out.  Everyone liked it but said we needed syrup instead of wine to dip it in.  LOL
