Communion is served on the first Sunday of each month during both services. For the Traditional Service, the elements are distributed separately, whereas the Contemporary Service is served intinction style, by dipping the consecrated bread, or host, into the consecrated wine before consumption. Communion is also served on the holidays of Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, and Maundy Thursday, and is typically served intinction style for those services.
Recipients of in-home communion are usually members of CPC who cannot attend services due to chronic health and mobility issues. Usually the Associate Pastor refers those to receive, and others within the congregation may make referrals. It is best to check with the Associate Pastor before making arrangements to provide services. Servers of in-home communion may be active or retired Elders or Deacons. Most servers have specific recipients they serve each month.
