You may recall that ruling elders are welcome to preside at Holy Communion in their own congregations once they have been adequately trained.  As a pastor, you are welcome to offer this training. 

You will find some curriculum options on the MVP website.  If you have a curriculum you would like posted, please let us know. 

Once a year the Branch of Congregational Life will offer a regional training for ruling elders who wish to preside at Holy Communion.  This year it is scheduled for  Saturday, September 30 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  Rev. Bob Butcher has agreed to teach this.  Participants will be charged $10.00 per person.  If you have some elders who would like to take this training, might you also be interested in hosting the event?  This would include:

  • Offering coffee/tea/water as people enter
  • Offering a lite luncheon.  The expenses for the luncheon may be turned into the Branch for reimbursement. 
  • Providing a white or black board
  • Providing bread so that students may practice presiding (they generally just use water to practice the cup)


If you are interested in hosting, please contact Pamela Short at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
