New Additions at Mount Hermon

This Do in Remembrance of Me

We read in Acts that the 'first Christians broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and generous hearts.' A key ingredient in partaking of the Lord's Supper is that of coming together to share the bread and wine in recognition of the forgiveness of our sins and our eternal life through the death and resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

As we observe the Lord's Supper on Sunday, June 5, we will use for the first time a set of stoneware pottery designed specifically for communion use. The pieces comprising the set were designed and made by Will Langford. The set (pictured here) consists of four goblets, four plates and two pitchers.

Langford's work which focuses mainly on functional pieces can be seen at cultural and invitational exhibitions both in and out of state as well as at his studio in Danielsville. At a later date this communion set will be dedicated for use in the church and to the Glory of God.
