                                         OPTIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE RECEIVING OF COMMUNION

Communion will now be both bread and wine at communion.  Recognizing that individuals comfort levels may differ about receiving communion there will be four options available.  (1)  Those who are not comfortable in physically receiving the bread or the wine at this time may simply remain in their pew. (2) Those not comfortable in receiving bread or wine MAY come to Altar rail, kneel as able, cross their arms on their chest, and receive a blessing only.   (3)  You may come to the rail, kneeling as able, hold out your hands and receive the bread, after consuming the bread you may cross your arms on the chest and not receive the wine.  Please remain in place at Altar until the Chalice bearer has stated before you the words of administration, then you may leave.   (4)  Knelling as able, you may receive the wine in two ways.  (a)  Directly from the chalice, or (b) By intinction.  The Chalice bearer will take the bread from your hands, dip it in the chalice, and then place it on your tongue.  (You may not dip your own bread.)
