Conversational Church

  • 11:15am–12:15pm in Live Oak Room (in the building to the left as you exit the Sanctuary, close to Magdalena Ave)
  • You are invited into a new model of church and a safe space for getting to know God, the world, and ourselves by speaking and listening to others – in and beyond the church. By intention and practice, we seek to transform the world by engaging honestly, directly, and respectfully with different voices, different minds, different experiences. On the first Sunday of every month, we share communion together.

Communion

God loves all of us!

Communion is a practice that is meant to be observed over and over throughout the life of a Christian. It is a holy time of worship when we corporately come together as one body to remember and celebrate all that Christ did for us through his life, death, and resurrection:

While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.” Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.” Matthew 26:26-28 (NIV)

In the United Methodist Church, Holy Communion is open to all persons. You do not have to be a member to participate. We serve Communion during our worship services on the first Sunday of the month. Grape juice is used, and one station offers gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free, egg-free bread so that all may partake of the elements.
