Virtual Communion
First Sunday of each Month:
February 7, 2021

Christ is made present to us in the breaking of the bread and the sharing of the cup by the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is not confined to a particular building, place, or time. Because we believe that sharing Communion is an act of faith, and because we need the nourishment that comes from sharing Christ’s feast, we will be celebrating Communion virtually for the month of February. What does that mean?

Pastor Scott and Pastor Leanne will lead us through the traditional and familiar words and actions of communion. They will break bread, pour the cup, and speak the words of institution, inviting Christ to be present with us wherever we are.

You will supply your own bread and cup. There are no strict rules about this. The bread represents the common food of common people. It can be any variety of bread, crackers, rice cakes, or tortillas – whatever you have available to you. The cup, likewise, was the common beverage of the day. Traditionally, that would have been wine. In our worship service we use grape juice. You may use either of these, or whatever juice or beverage you have available. Remember, the bread and cup are symbols, the presence of Christ is made real in them by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Please let us know that you shared in this wider offering of God’s gracious feast by commenting on the Facebook worship video feed or sending a message (text or email) to the pastors.

First Presbyterian Church strives to be: "...the Church with HEART in the HEART of Willmar." HEART spells out the Core Values we try to live in our personal lives and in our life together. These are our Core Values:

Hospitality:     
Creating a welcoming and accessible environment where members and visitors alike can come together for study, fellowship, conversation, inspiration and service.

Encouragement: 
Offering compassion and care to our neighbors near and far through ministries and missions that encourage people in body, mind and spirit.

Acceptance:    
Creating a culture of grace and understanding where each person can feel a sense of belonging and purpose in Christ’s body, the church.

Reconciliation:
Becoming active participants in repairing the brokenness of this world by practicing peacemaking in our personal and corporate lives, forgiving one another, as Christ forgives us.

Transformation:
Growing in faith and becoming more Christ-like in our individual and community lives as we allow ourselves to be shaped by God’s Word.
