The Lord's Supper is celebrated every Sunday at Church of the Servant. People come forward and are served in groups, entering the circle from the center aisles and leaving by the outside aisles. As they pass the bread and wine, served in these vessels, they say to each other, "the body of Christ for you" and "the blood of Christ for you," or other appropriate words. Throughout, songs and hymns are sung. A different set of vessels are used for each of the liturgical seasons.
