A few years back, I learned that any believer can serve communion - the is nothing Scriptural which limits it to clergy.

I'm a deacon! I serve practically every sunday. Since i'm the PK i'm there by default and people ask me to sub for them all the time and then i have my assigned months. I don't mind though. They're gonna miss me when i'm at college!

U2democrat - you are such a young deacon! What a lot of reponsibility! We have a girl in our congregation that is around your age and a deacon too. I admire both of you!

What is a PK?

I learned that a few years ago too. Usually our Pastors or Deacons serve Communion, but come to think of it - I've seen others doing it too.

PK = preacher's kid; which means a lot of eyes are watching you grow up.

This thread reminds me that I should start serving communion at home.

too true, nbc! some of those eyes are critical, but most are supportive.
my big sister is also a minister and so is her husband, and of course, so is my dad.




and i want to be in politics.

One of my Pastors grew up as a PK.

Politics needs new blood - the type that care more about the world then themselves.

Forgive us.
Open our hearts to a new way of seeing the people of the world,

i am a former believer and am admitedly quite skeptical of any/all organized religion these days. however, that prayer is what we need more of in this world. it's nice to see that sentiment coming out of some churches.

I joined an organized religion because I think that people can do lots in groups. In the summer of 2002, Churches rang bells one day for the Jubilee's Drop the Debt effort and I felt left out that I didn't belong to one.

One of the nicest things I've been a part of since joining the Church is cooking for a soup kitchen. It really feels good!

Se7en, if you ever want to check into a Church again perhaps you can find one here:

ucc.org

I've really enjoyed being a part of a congregation working together for good things.

Boston Anne, are you UCC? If so, did you go to the general assembly in Kansas City a couple years ago? It was a joint convention btw. the UCC and Christian Church Disciples of Christ. I'm w/the Disciples of Christ and was there.

Yes, I'm UCC U2democrat. I haven't ventured out of my little congregation as of yet though. My pastors and other members attend UCC things and report back.

Do you know what the difference between UCC & Christian Church Disciples of Christ is?
