    I checked 'Other'

    We serve wine from the pulpit side of the sanctuary and grape juice from the lectern side (primarily to accomodate those who are alcoholics).

    One interesting thing about the way in which we take communion is how often we do it.

    I have always been under the impression that a thimble size plastic cup is supplied to each one and some bread.

    Yet I went to communion at the Celtic Church and it was a shared cup of real wine and wafers.

    And in the Church of God Seventh Day it is once a year only at the time of the Passover.

    I still take communion the first way, yet I see some merit in the Passover Communion Annually too.

    My goodness, only two of us actually use wine? I really thought it would be more than that.

    We use one glass of wine for the church and one or two of the ladies will make the unleavened bread.

    Observed twice a year.

    Obviously, if you've seen me post at all, you know we wash feet too.

    I know a lot of the older generation used to make the wine too, but I doubt any of the rest of us even know how. I'd like to try it. I know it involved putting the grapes/juice behind an old radiator...not the car kind, the Dearborn heater kind. [​IMG]

    Isn't that funny? A good many people (10 so far) say wine is correct, but the vast majority use grape juice.

    I have yet to see a church ever use real grape juice. Welch's is not real grape juice. It is doctored up a lot. Just take a grape and squeeze it sometime.
