Communion

We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of every month. 

We invite you to celebrate this Sacrament by preparing bread and
juice/wine at home to be used during our live stream service. At Westminster we use grape juice. If you are interested in making the bread that we use
at Westminster, below you will find the recipe from Ruth Carey!

Westminster Communion Bread 

**please note: This recipe makes one cookie sheet of communion bread,  you may want to reduce the recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 2.5 cups Gold Medal flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup and 3 Tbsp. Sugar
  • 1/3 cup and 2.5 Tbsp. Crisco
  • 1 cup Half & Half
  • 3/4 tsp Vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp almond extract

Materials

  • 12" x 18" Cookie Pan
  • Parchment Paper
  • Rolling Pin
  • Wax Paper
  • Oven preheated to 325 degrees

Steps:

  1. Sift flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg three times while praying "Father, Son and Holy Spirit."
  2. Cream together sugar and Crisco
  3.  Mix creamed mixture with dry ingredients and then add Half & Half, vanilla and almond extract
  4. Place dough on a 12" x 18" cookie sheet lined with parchment paper (Do not grease.) The soft dough must be spread evenly so it completely covers the pan to the edges of the parchment paper into the corners. To ensure evenness and to press the air out cover the dough with parchment or wax paper and lightly roll over it with a rolling pin.  (You may also use rubber gloves for patting it down or the pack of the spoon.) Remove the parchment or wax paper before baking.
  5. Bake 15 minutes in a preheated 325 degree oven.  The baking time and temperature is just right, as the top should not even be slightly brown.  Each oven is different so please watch carefully so that it does not brown.
