  • Whole grain cereal, like Raisin Bran, Honey Nut Cheerios, Granola, etc.
  • Creamy peanut butter

World Communion Sunday

October 1 @ 10:15 am - 11:30 am

World Communion Sunday offers us a distinctive opportunity to experience Holy Communion in the context of the global community of faith. The first Sunday of October has become a time when Christians in every culture break bread and pour the cup to remember and affirm Christ as the Head of the Church. On this day, we remember that we are part of the whole body of believers. Whether shared in a grand cathedral, a mud hut, outside on a hilltop, in a meetinghouse, or in a storefront, Christians celebrate the communion liturgy in as many ways as there are congregations.
