Prayer Meeting Conference Call – Wednesday, 7:00pm

Instructions for joining the call will go out via email on Tuesday.

The Lord’s Supper

Several of you have asked about whether or how we can receive the Lord’s Supper during this time. Pastor Nicoletti will speak to this at the beginning of the service. First, based on past decisions of the General Assembly (our denomination’s highest ecclesiastical court), we cannot officiate the Lord’s Supper via live stream. But second, for theological reasons, we also agree that we should not officiate the Lord’s Supper via live stream, or try to celebrate the Lord’s Supper without a minister or the gathered assembly. Pastor Nicoletti will give a brief explanation of the reasons for this before the service, but if you’d like a more detailed discussion of this question, we’d encourage you to take a look at an article by the Rev. Dr. Scott R. Swain, a professor at Reformed Theological Seminary, which can be found here.
