How do I participate in online communion?

Preparing for Online Communion

Each Sunday, when together we profess our faith, we affirm our belief in “the communion of the saints.” This communion of the saints has become a very real component of our faith during this time of COVID-19. We cannot be with one another and we cannot gather in one physical place. We feel this loss of fellowship acutely, especially when we want to approach the Lord’s Table.

So, in extraordinary times, how will we come to the Table? As is often said: extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures. Even though we are not visibly together, we are truly together because of our union with Christ. If each of us is joined to Christ by virtue of our faith and baptism, then we are also joined to one another as the one body of Christ. This is our true communion.

In normal times, when members of our congregation are home-bound, we take communion to them. This is called extended communion. Well, we are all home-bound now and with the approval of the Session we will, just in these extenuating circumstances, offer communion online to our home-bound congregation.

Preparing and Participating in Online Communion

  1. We encourage you to participate with your household. John Knox, one of our Presbyterian forebears, encouraged families to participate together in worship and would celebrate communion in people’s homes. This is a tradition we can call on.
  2. Prepare ahead of time by having grape juice (or wine) in individual cups and individual portions of bread or crackers (symbolic of unleavened bread).
  3. Examine your heart and relationships and make what steps you can for forgiveness and reconciliation. Especially seek forgiveness from the Lord, perhaps by praying the words of David in Psalm 51:7-12.
  4. Reflect on things you are thankful for. Since Communion is also called “Eucharist” (Thanksgiving) and the “joyful feast of the Lord,” spend some time reflecting on things for which you are thankful, for things that have given you joy and prayerfully express your gratitude to the Lord.
  5. During the online service, as the pastor directs, partake of the bread and the cup, knowing that your brothers and sisters in their places are communing with you.
  6. Finally, remember these words: "There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all." - Ephesians 4:4-6
