Why prep communion?
For most who come from a Catholic or similar church background, communion is the pinnacle of the service where we come together to eat a simple meal that symbolized what Christ did for us on the cross. At Shelter Rock Church we look at communion, or the Lord’s Supper, as a remembrance of what Jesus did. We celebrate communion once a month rather than every week to keep it special. One of the most tangible ways to help someone come to know the love of God is to help them understand the significance of the cross, and communion is one of the most powerful ways the church has done that for centuries.
Your role serving on this team
Assist with some aspect of the process. It may be coming early to help prepare the grape juice and matzoh, or refilling the trays between services, or helping to clean up the trays and cups after the service. It depends on your schedule and what works best for you.
- Help prepare the Communion elements and / or clean up afterwards.
- Arrive one hour prior to the service, one Sunday per month for preparation of communion filling trays with matzoh and plastic cups with grape juice (except during Lent or for special holiday services).
- For clean up, you will need to stay approx. 30 mins after the 2nd service to clear out all plastic cups under chairs and wash and clean trays.
