Communion and Offertory – Today we invite you to participate in the communion of the Lord’s Supper.  For those who don’t wish to participate please feel perfectly free to remain seated.  For those parents who wish their children to participate, they are perfectly welcome.  Please come forward down the center aisle.  If it is not easy for you to come forward, raise your hand and an usher will serve you at your seat.  As you receive the communion elements of bread and wine (representing the body and blood of Jesus), you are welcome to bring an offering.  An offering is one way we participate by sharing what God has given us to do “Jesus work” of making the gospel available, and to worship him.  If you happen to be a guest today please don’t feel required to give, we are delighted to have you and this service is our gift to you.  Please take the bread and cup back to your seat and we will eat and drink together as one body when all have been served.
