Lay Eucharistic Ministers serve the bread and/or wine during Holy Communion at all Eucharistic worship services at Saint Barnabas. This ministry of imparting the body and blood of Christ dates back to the earliest traditions of the Christian church. We take the Body of Christ into ourselves, which nourishes us to take the message of God’s love out into the world. The only requirements for this ministry are steady hands for carrying the cup or plate and steady feet for traversing the steps by the altar rail. All those interested in learning about serving as a Lay Eucharistic Minister are invited to attend a training session in the Sanctuary on Sunday, January 9, OR Sunday, January 16 following the conclusion of the 10:15 service. RSVP to Deacon Sarah Getts  Unable to attend on those dates? We will coordinate another option. Thank you!
