Holy Communion this Sunday for online worship, please remember to prepare. We continue our practice of observing Holy Communion on the first Sunday of the month. We created a video to offer guidance on how to prepare for Holy Communion at home. If you haven't seen it yet, or could use a reminder, we hope this may serve you in preparing for the Lord's Supper this coming Lord's Day.
