During these unprecedented times many people are finding themselves worshiping at home for the first time in their lives. That means they are learning how to plan for worship so they are prepared and have everything needed for worship on the morning of the Lord’s Day.
Many are utilizing online streaming services and tuning in to help guide their minds and hearts as they enter into worship of God. Our own congregation is providing a Live streaming option. We are broadcasting our worship both on our website via the home page, and on our Facebook page as well. This service is available on Sunday morning beginning at 10:00 a.m. central with worship beginning at 10:20 a.m. On Wednesday, our minister will host a Bible discussion at 7:00 p.m. central which is also available streaming to both of those locations.
But, that leaves many asking what to do about the Lord’s Supper. Some congregations, ours included, have provided memberships with a travel version of the Lord’s supper. But, if you are still needing to find a way to manage this at home, we suggest baking your own unleavened bread. It really is easier than you might think. You just need four simple ingredients.
Also, you’ll need to have on-hand 100% grape juice which is easily found in most grocery stores, but can be found in smaller bottles even at your local convenience store.
Unleavened Bread Recipe
- 1 cup plain flour
- 1/4 water
- 1/4 cup olive oil (or any cooking oil will work)
- pinch of salt (optional)
Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.
Mix all ingredients into a bowl, kneading to form a dough. The texture is similar to the texture of a pastry crust. Flatten the dough and shape into rounds. You can use a biscuit cutter if you want. Score along the top of the dough using a pizza cutter or pastry wheel to create the breakable sections. Or, you can simply pierce with a fork to allow air to escape.
Place on a cookie sheet, bake for 6 minutes on one side. Then, flip the bread rounds, and bake for another 6 minutes on the other side.
