Intergenerational Communion Class

October 3 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am EDT

Come to the Table: An Intergenerational Event

“There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to the one hope of your calling, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all.” Ephesians 4:4-6

This six-foot banner at the denominational offices in Louisville was created to illustrate the Peacemaking Offering for World Communion Sunday on October 5, 1997. This design was originally drawn in oil pastels by Dorothea B. Kennedy and was translated into fabric by Gloiela Yau Dolak. As the mountains and hills rejoice, the thirsty of all nations are invited to come to the water; the hungry are invited to come to the table. Everyone is welcome.The first Sunday in October is designated as World Communion Sunday, which celebrates our oneness in Christ with all our siblings around the world. Churches from many different traditions and in many different contexts join together in the celebration. We remember that, in the sacrament of Communion, the Lord gathers us around one table where there is room enough for all, no matter our differences.

On Sunday, October 3, adults and youth are invited to explore the rich truths of this special day during the Christian Education hour. Please join us in the Chapel at 10:00 a.m. for this intergenerational learning opportunity.
