Listen to the one-hour webcast as we share results from our recent church survey and discuss:

  • How churches are adjusting Sunday services and weekday ministry and how to keep your activities safe

BISHOP NUNN'S INSTRUCTIONS FOR ON-LINE COMMUNION

 

During this unprecedented time when congregations are compelled not to gather physically to receive Holy Communion as a means of grace, Bishop Nunn will allow the following:  

 

United Methodist licensed local pastors and ordained elders in the Oklahoma Annual Conference may celebrate the sacrament of holy communion through a recorded or online worship service to which people are invited to gather as a congregation from a distance.  It is recommended that an order from the United Methodist Book of Worship or United Methodist Hymnal be used.  The Words of Institution and Epiclesis ("Pour out Your Holy Spirit"... ) are essential to the service.  This unusual way of consecrating and receiving this sacrament is being allowed during the COVID-19 pandemic because congregations are being gathered electronically by necessity. The elements of bread and preferably some form of juice need to be used by the congregants wherever they are.  Clergy are strongly encouraged to use the Lord's Prayer either before or after the community receives the elements.  Congregations that are led by supply pastors should join with a congregation that is led by a licensed or ordained clergyperson in order to partake of the sacrament.
