Communion to homebound
Eucharistic (yü-kə-ˈri-stik) Ministry
Eucharist is another word that refers to Holy Communion or the Lord’s Supper. Eucharistic Ministers are vital to our ministry to our homebound members. They extend the Lord’s table to our homebound members and are just one more way we help our homebound members feel connected to their church home and nurture them in their faith journey.
Are you warm, inviting, and able to meet and visit with others in a variety of circumstances? Do you have the gifts of hospitality and listening, and are you comfortable in different settings? Do you have an hour or two a month available to visit a homebound member? God may be calling you to serve as a Eucharistic minister.
If you are interested in being a Eucharistic Minister you will receive training from one of the pastors, and then be assigned to visit one person who is homebound. You will visit the same person every month. The visit for communion should occur if at all possible before sunset on the same day, or within 24 hours. You are extending the worship service for the individual you are visiting by including this member as part of the worship community. If you are unable to visit every month, the position could be shared or a substitute could cover if you are out of town. This is a valuable and rewarding ministry.
