Let Us Break Bread Together

The sacraments — which have been blessed by Pastor Joe — are individually wrapped and sealed, complete with juice and wafer.  Look for a bin on a small table under the portico outside the North entrance to the church.  Containers of hand sanitizer will also be on the table.

  • Drive-up any time during the pick-up days (see dates below)
  • Sanitize your hands,
  • Take as many individually wrapped pieces as needed for your family,
  • Replace the lid.
  • Simple as that.
  • Take your sacraments home.
  • Set them out as you prepare for the virtual service at 10:30 am.
  • Click on  First Church on Facebook 
  • Share in the bread and the cup with Pastor Joe during Communion.
