Celebrating Love Feasts

03.25.20 | Wellness and Missions

    Love Feasts are a unique Wesleyan ritual created and encouraged in a time in our history when circuit-riding preachers could not always be present to consecrate the bread and wine. Love feasts draw people together around a simple, shared and holy meal.

    In a season when churches can't gather in person for Communion, the Love Feast is a meaningful option for a ritual that evokes the presence of God and binds people together in Christian love.
