Abstract
This project sought to serve those who are physically unable to attend church by offering Home Communion in their homes or care facilities. Seven two-person teams composed of church officers carried the consecrated elements directly to the shut-ins each Communion Sunday. In this way, we not only hoped to give our recipients the joy of worship and visitation but also the consolation of knowing they are cared for by their church. The purpose of this project was tri-fold: it endeavored to build personal intimacy with Christ, intimacy with Christ in community, and service beyond the confines of the church.
