Christmas Eve I attended an 11 o'clock candlelight communion service at a United Methodist Church nearby. It was a nice, quiet, service with traditional music. After the sermon, several assistant pastors prepared the communion. Then, one asked the "servers" to come forward. Four or five women came forward and then proceeded to serve communion (with the two male pastors). I'm clear about women serving as pastors but have never researched other roles for women. Is this scriptural? Had I known this would occur I would have either: 1) not attended or 2)researched the question first.
