Farm to Altar Table

Research from ground to altar the journey of the bread/wafer/wine/grape juice that your congregation uses for Eucharist each week.

Food is God’s love made edible. The Eucharist, or Communion, is a sacrament that every branch of Christianity holds with special regard.  Speak with your pastor so that your church uses communion bread and wine that are produced in a way that honors God’s creative work.  Also, as Spring approaches, have church members sign up to bring flowers from their gardens, or plan to grow some flowers on the church property.  This can not only save money and use fewer fossil fuels, but can make worship more meaningful (make sure to testify in worship if your church does this!)
