“Gracious God, loving all your family with a mother’s tender care:  As you sent the angel to feed Elijah with heavenly bread, assist us in this ministry on which we set forth.  In your love and care, nourish and strengthen those to whom we bring this sacrament, that through the body and blood of your Son we all may know the comfort of your abiding presence.  Amen”
 
 
Our participants are: Eileen Finer, Lynne Kearney, Gene & Sandy Talbot, Suzanne Pleasant, and Allan Howard.
 
On the first Sunday of the month, there is a short addition to our Liturgy.  Shortly after Holy Communion is celebrated, the Ministers of Holy Communion from the Assembly are called forward.  The above prayer is read in preparation for sending out our brothers and sisters in the faith to those who cannot be at Worship. This team has spent time learning the “in’s and out’s” of visiting our homebound and hospitalized members.
 
The privilege of participating in this ministry is not lost on those who bring the Meal of life and salvation to those who can’t be here on Sunday.  Blessings abound as the Word is shared and the Sacrament received.  Thanks be to God!
