Hi Church family! 
Communion Service this coming Sabbath on Zoom
How to prepare!


I just wanted to remind you all of the announcement Pr. Tony shared with us last Sabbath regarding communion. 

This coming Sabbath 9th May the Family Ministry Team will lead out in Communion Service on Zoom.

However, preparation is key in maintaining the sanctity of this ritual.

Here are steps the Family Ministry Team would like all of us to implement as we prepare to celebrate the sacrifice Jesus did for us on Calvary.

1) Foot washing – you need a bucket, water and towels.

2) Communion Bread Preparation – There are three options available to you:
1st – you can bake your own bread; the recipe is provided for you. This could be a family activity. Please prayerfully carry out this activity, it would be a great opportunity to explain why bread is being used as a symbol for the body of Jesus.
2nd you can buy Captain’s Table Biscuits from the supermarket.
These biscuits don’t have yeast in them

3rd, if these options won’t work for you, please let your pastoral team leaders for a delivery of ready-made bread. We need to know the numbers by tomorrow afternoon.

Scriptures tell us that the bread used in the feast of the Passover and that used in the Lord's Supper was unleavened.

Here is good recipe for making communion bread:
   1 cup fine-ground flour (preferably whole grain)
   1/4 teaspoon salt
   2 tablespoons cold water
   1/4 cup olive or other vegetable oil
Sift the flour and salt together. Pour the water into the oil, but do not stir. Add to the dry ingredients and mix with a fork until all the flour is dampened. Roll out between two sheets of waxed paper to the thickness of thick pie pastry. Place on an ungreased, floured baking sheet, and mark off with a sharp knife into bite-sized squares, being careful to prick each square to prevent blistering. Bake at 220 for 10 to 15 minutes. Watch carefully during the last five minutes so that the bread will not burn. This recipe will be sufficient to serve about fifty persons.

3) Grape Juice – please note, we only use red grape juice, not sparkling grape juice.

Pr. Tony let me know today that there will be bread and grape juice (please bring a small container for juice) available for pick-up from outside Albury Church (805 David St, Albury) on Friday.

I would like to conclude with the three questions that we have been contemplating on for the past month. 

•    Did you contact anyone this week?
•    Are you praying with someone? Meaning, did you ring someone this week to      check how they’re doing and offered to pray with them?
•    Who are you praying for?

Please invite members and non-members to join us next Sabbath as we celebrate God’s unfailing love for us.


Hope to catch up with you on Sabbath.
