Home communion sets made of recycled glass

Plan to attend worship and communion at the UCC’s General Synod 33.

Sunday, July 11, at 5 p.m. EDT
Wednesday, July 14, at 8 p.m. EDT
Sunday, July 18, at 6 p.m. EDT

You can get a taste of what is to come by watching two videos from the worship preparation gatherings. In these videos are clips of some of the music being prepared, and a worship video combining music and visuals.

General Synod worship will include a lighting of the teepees ceremony with the permission of the Rocky Mountain Tribal Leaders Council.

You’ll hear about plans for things each of us can do at home during worship; these “sacred time aids” – devotionals, guided meditations, brief spiritual exercises, songs, visuals, videos, prayers, prompts for journaling, theological reflections – are being developed now by UCC members and clergy across the denomination.

Glass and fabric artists have prepared communion sets and altar cloths which you can purchase for your home worship.

You can attend the final two worship planning gatherings: June 8 and 11. If you enjoy the creativity of worship planning, please attend. Links for those will be coming here soon.
