World Communion

On October 1st and 2nd we will celebrate World CommunionWorld Communion

Modern Worship 6pm Saturday Night
Traditional Worship 10am Sunday Morning

World Communion celebrates our oneness in Christ with all our brothers and sisters around the world.  Paul tells us that we are to “discern the body” when we partake of Holy Communion, mindful that we note our relationship to all our brothers and sisters in Christ in the celebration.

Some history behind this Sunday. The tradition was begun in 1933 by Hugh Thomson Kerr who ministered in the Shadyside Presbyterian Church. “Davitt S. Bell (the late Clerk of Session and church historian at Shadyside) recalled that Dr. Kerr first conceived the notion of World Communion Sunday during his year as moderator of the General Assembly (1930). It started as a Presbyterian tradition and has spread to many other denominations.
