Thank you for taking time out of your schedule to be our guest.

I have surmised from the reviews of other churches that you may be more accustomed to a liturgical service and "closed" communion. This would explain why our observance of the Lord's Supper would be foreign to your previous experience.

We make this time of remembrance available to all who worship with us as Christ's followers, and we provide this opportunity weekly, following the example of the early church found in the Book of Acts.

Thank you for pointing out that we can most certainly work on our transition from communion to the next worship element. Also, thank you for reminding us to be ever vigilant in helping those who are our guests to feel welcomed in our community of faith.
