This week, Community Church will center on John 6:24-35. This passage is between parables and basically a behind-the-scenes look at how people responded to Jesus. People are less likely to have a Galilean fisherman draw large crowds around Leisure World, but how they respond to the teachings of Jesus almost 2,000 years later is still telling of the power of Jesus’ teachings.
The church will review the Scripture from last week, in which Jesus fed the 5,000. The church will celebrate holy Communion, what many call the Eucharist, with an open table. All who are present are welcome to receive the elements of bread and juice.
Community Church is a place where everything is designed with the first-time participant in mind. Those who have not felt welcome in church or have never participated in church before are welcome to join.
As Orange County continues to emerge from the pandemic, the church welcomes everyone to participate virtually on Zoom and Facebook and those who are vaccinated are invited to attend in person.
The sanctuary is open for those who are vaccinated, and services are open virtually for those who either cannot join physically or are still in the midst of their vaccination routine. Full vaccination is two shots after two weeks.
