World Communion Sunday

October 6, 2019

World Communion Sunday

Communion Chalices, including The Discples' Chalice, which represents the centrality of communion to the life of the church
World Communion Sunday is a celebration observed by several Christian denominations, taking place on the first Sunday of every October, that promotes Christian unity and ecumenical cooperation. The tradition originated in the Shadyside Presbyterian Church in 1933, was adopted throughout the US Presbyterian Church in 1936, and subsequently spread to other denominations. In 1940, the Federal Council of Churches (now the National Council of Churches), led by Jesse Moren Bader, endorsed World Communion Sunday and began to promote it to Christian churches worldwide.

This year the Worship Committee invites everyone to express their ethnicity, heritage, and culture through your clothing, international banners and flags as we celebrate Christian unity around the world. Dress up and show out!
