We begin our live stream with a countdown to the start of worship 5 minutes before worship (8:25 am PST).
The content of the sermon is the same at all three weekend services.
How We Take Communion
We have an open table at Incarnation. All believers are welcome to commune, including children of all ages, subject to their parents’ discretion. We use two methods for serving communion:
Communion is served by intinction at standing stations at the 5:30pm and 8:30am services. The pastor will hand you a wafer and say: “The body of Christ is given for you.” (If you require gluten free, please indicate so at this time). You will then dip your wafer into the wine in the silver chalice or the grape juice in the ceramic chalice as the communion server says: “The blood of Christ is shed for you.” You may respond, “Amen” and eat the wafer; then return to your seat.
Communion is served by communing each other at the 5:00pm service. We pass a basket containing communion packets from one to another. The person holding the basket will take a packet, then turn to you and say “The body and blood of Christ is given for you.” You take a packet out of the basket; then take the basket and turn to the next person and say “The body and blood of Christ is given for you.” (or something close to that, you can’t get it wrong...). When everyone has received a packet, all will commune together following the direction of the pastor. Wine is not used at this service. The communion packets are not gluten free, but gluten free wafers are available at this service as well.
What should I wear?
God accepts us as we are - no matter who we are, what we do, or how we dress. Worshipers at Incarnation wear anything from shorts and tee shirts, to pants and golf shirts, to suits and ties. Please wear whatever you feel is most comfortable for you in this setting.
