This week we are putting a modern spin on the good old fashion church potluck — or what the early church called “a love feast.”
A love feast is a meal shared among community in remembrance of Jesus’ last supper with his friends. To truly capture the nature of what it means to live in Christian community, we are encouraging everyone to contribute something to our shared meal.
If you have the capacity to contribute something -even something small- please let us know what it is so we can make sure we have enough for all!
Like any meal shared among family or friends, our gathering will feature stories, jokes, and maybe even a group singalong!
Our focus this week is on the sacraments of the church. We’ll be asking…
What are they?
Why do we do them?
How does God show up in and through these rituals?
While the protestant church only acknowledges two sacraments, we will take on the list of 7 affirmed but the Catholic Church: baptism, confirmation, confession, marriage, ordination, anointing the sick, and the Lord’s Supper.
