World Communion Sunday: October 3, 2021

Each year, Christians around the world mark the first Sunday in October by coming together for communion. This year, World Communion Sunday falls on October 3. And, as described in Luke 13:29, “The people will come from east and west, from north and south, and will eat at the table of God.”

What are your earliest memories of communion? What do you find meaningful being at the table? Is the Lord’s Supper important? Why or why not? What needs to happen to make your experience a sacramental and holy one? Are there any funny stories about communion that come to mind?

As members of the Church of the Palms, United Church of Christ, our worship on World Communion Sunday rejoices in our unity given in Christ, which transcends our brokenness and division. Our unity is fully expressed in communion, which reminds us that we welcome one another at the table as Christ welcomed us.

World Communion Sunday is a special day for us at The Palms:

  • We will have different breads from around the world for communion.
  • Our liturgies will be in languages from around the globe.
  • We will gather and celebrate this holy meal with brothers and sisters from around the world.

I hope to see you here!

Shalom, Paul
