Online Communion Service

Dear Upper Columbia Conference family,

Invitation to UCC Easter Communion Service 
Join the Upper Columbia Conference of Seventh-day Adventists for a special Easter Communion Service following church worship on Sabbath, April 11, starting at 12:15 p.m. (Pacific Standard Time). All are welcome!

Regardless of our necessary stay at home mandate, through technology, we will celebrate our faith in Jesus love, sacrifice and resurrection. Because He lives, we remain resolute and unafraid. I pray that you will join us in this communion.

To prepare for this online event, please follow the steps below.
• Read John 13 and Desire of Ages, pages 642 – 661. If possible, please conduct the ordinance of humility in your home.
• Prepare the bread. For a recipe to make unleavened bread, please see below.
• Get unfermented grape juice.
• Remember to celebrate—Communion should always be a solemn, never somber, experience. Wrongs have been righted, sins have been forgiven, and faith has been reaffirmed. It is a time for celebration!

The service will be streamed on Facebook live and available from www.facebook.com/uppercolumbia
 
We hope you will join us!
Minner Labrador Jr.
President
Upper Columbia Conference

PLEASE NOTE: The UCC website is down at the moment so this Online Communion Event was moved from the UCC website to FACEBOOK  at www.facebook.com/uppercolumbia 

 

Commuion Bread Recipe

  • 1/2 Cup of Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Cup of Water
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Cups of Whole Wheat Flour –  Whatever you use, make sure it is a good quality whole wheat. You can tell if the flour is brown.
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F
  2. Combine the olive oil, water, and salt. Wisk it with a wisk or a fork until its near-frothy white. Alternatively, you can put it in a blender instead.
  3. Loosely mix the flour in and blend. You don’t want to mix it too much or glutton chains will start to form. When making normal bread, this is desirable. But, since we’re making unleavened bread, it will make it too hard.
  4. Make sure the dough is the same consistency of a drier batch of cookie dough.
  5. Grease a cookie sheet well with a hard fat like Crisco, Smart Balance, or any other Trans Fat/Saturated Fat OR use a SILPAT or other baking sheet.
  6. Roll the dough flat (as thin as pie crust)
  7. Once the dough is flat, it is necessary to make some incisions or pricks so that bubbles will not form in the baking process you can do this with a fork. Then score the dough into cracker-like squares. If you want to keep larger pieces, simply make a sizable scoring incision every 6-12 inches.
  8. Bake for about 10 minutes. Watch it constantly after 9 minutes to avoid burn. Browned (not just burnt) communion bread tastes better. Adjust the time for crispier or flimsier bread.
