January 17 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
All who are baptized and believe that in Communion we receive the true body and blood of Jesus, under the form of bread and wine, are invited to the Lord’s Table for Drive-Through Communion at Saint Thomas. Please read the parking lot procedure below. The host will be served in individual zip-lock bags. The blood of Christ will be served with individual cups. Alcohol-free wine and gluten-free host are available upon request.
PARKING LOT PROCEDURE
A traffic usher will direct you to the rear (west) parking lot, where orange traffic cones will have you circle the outer edge of the lot until you come to either “Place A” or the end of the line. At “Place A” you will be greeted by a second traffic usher while you remain in your car. Please hand him/her this “Communion Card” (with the reverse side completed). The usher will pass the information on to those serving communion. When the communion table is prepared, the traffic usher will direct you to “Place B”. The server will be at the far end of the table. Those in your car will get out of the car and stand at the near end of the table. Communion will be in disposable cups and zip lock bags on the table. After going through the brief liturgy with the server and communing, you will place your communion ware in the receptacle, re-enter your vehicle, and return home. In order to lessen the waiting time, we will have two communion serving stations at the end of the line.
PRAYER OF PREPARATION
Dear Savior, at Your gracious invitation I come to Your table to eat and drink Your holy body and blood. Let me find favor in Your eyes to receive this holy Sacrament in faith for the salvation of my soul and to the glory of Your holy name; for You live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen. (LSB front cover)
