We gather in Christ’s name. As we celebrate the Communion Meal, we acknowledge the fact that many go without regular meals. Many are food insecure. Help us as a community of this sacred Communion Meal to feed the hungry, and care for the poor. Amen.

Serving Christ at Home and in the World
Alpha and Omega, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, be in and through us as we leave this sacred space. May we grow in understanding, empathy, and compassion. May we not judge but rather meet people where they are. May we bring healing, comfort, and love to all we meet. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
