"Gastro-Spirituality": A Holy Communion Sermon Series

What's the point of Holy Communion? Why do we do it as often as we do? What does it mean? Can we do it in different ways? 

These are all questions that this sermon series will address, and each week, we will receive communion in a different way. The series culminates in our Brunch Church Service on Sunday, July 9th at 10:30am.
