At CCOV all people, regardless of their age, gender, or religious affiliation are invited to the Lord’s table. Communion is served on the first Sunday of each month. Most months, the congregation remains in the pews and the Communion elements are served in trays by ushers. In order to maintain a safe environment for members of the CCOV community, we use grape juice instead of wine. Additionally, gluten free wafers are available in the Communion plate for those who cannot tolerate gluten.
Occasionally Communion is served by intinction, which is to say that the bread and the wine (juice) are presented to the congregants for them to dip their bread at the altar (or at their pew if they are physically challenged).
