SSUMC CELEBRATING HOLY COMMUNION THIS SUNDAY, AUGUST 2
We welcome you to set your table with bread/crackers and juice/lemonade/water for everyone worshipping with you today. Our tables are extensions of Christ’s table. Together we share the bread of life and the cup of salvation. We hope you will participate with us in this holy time.
COMMUNION TABLE PARAMENT
White or gold cloths are used on the Communion Table as a sign of a special feast day in the church. White and gold are colors of purity and light. In approaching the Communion Table, we remember that Jesus is the light of the world. At the Communion Table we physically taste the goodness of his grace, represented in the bread and the cup. And we leave the Communion Table carrying his light into the world.
SWEETEST GRATITUDE FOR OUR AUGUST REPLENISH RESTORE FOOD DRIVE
Thank you for your generous donations to SSUMC’s August Food Drive this week.
Our neighbors and fellow servants at Restore – a ministry of Riverview First UMC – are so grateful. With your help, they were able to respond to assistance requests from persons experiencing food insecurities in our community. What a witness of being the Church, even in uncertain times! Thank you, dear friends!
