Covid-19 has transformed many things, some temporary and some permanent. For now, many congregations have changed how they distribute the Lord’s Supper. Traditionally, most congregations of the churches of Christ served the unleavened bread and fruit of the vine to each person in the pew. Passing the plates/trays was commonplace among us. Depending on the size of the congregation, a number of men would be needed to serve each first day of the week.
Now we are using pre-filled communion cups with the wafer and grape juice individually wrapped. With the Coronavirus, and the change in the way we serve, those men are no longer needed in that role. For some, this was the only avenue of service they were willing or able to fill in a public worship service.
What do they do now?
There are many avenues of service in each congregation and throughout our daily lives (Romans 12:11).
One question we all need to keep before us:
How much am I willing to serve? What can I do in the service of Christ and His Church?
