ONLINE COMMUNION


The first Sunday of each month we celebrate the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper simultaneously from hundreds of locations across the globe.  (On these Sundays, the Sacrament takes the place of our Meditation in the service.) We ask that you mindfully prepare emblems of bread and wine in your location so that when the blessings are given in the livestream, you can share in this symbolic, sacred meal with our global congregation.  If you are watching the services recorded, we ask that you wait until you can be with us live to share in the sacrament. 

Watch Past Services

In our Easter service, Pastor John Hamer described how the life and death of the historical Jesus, followed by visions of the risen Christ led early Christians to write sacred stories in the form of the gospels. The gospels are not eyewitness accounts, nor are they histories — rather they are religious texts that speak of the Jesus Christ of scripture. The scriptures, in turn, inspired and informed Christian theology and our understanding of God through the conception or lens of the Trinity.

On September 26th, we held a special Testimony Service where members shared the diverse reasons they feel called to be part of Community of Christ and their hopes and visions for the future.

Get a feeling for our Global Congregation with a special Testimony Service from Tahiti!  Each week, French Polynesia is consistently the third most represented country in our service after the United States and Canada.
