World Communion Sunday

This Sunday is designated World Communion Sunday by the National Council of Churches.
Read a brief history of the observance.
According to the National Council of Churches USA, "The day has taken on new relevancy and depth of meaning in a world where globalization often has undermined peace and justice -- and in a time when fear divides the peoples of God's earth. On this day we celebrate our oneness in Christ, the Prince of Peace, in the midst of the world we are called to serve -- a world ever more in need of peacemaking."
We will celebrate communion, and the timeless and universal nature of the Christian church. The worship bulletin is here.
