Bethlehem Communion Ware
Did you know our synod office has communion
ware crafted in Bethlehem by local artisans,
that is available for use by synod congregations?
We invite your church to take advantage of this opportunity to experience in worship both the presence of Christ and the quest for peace in the Holy Land. Using these Bethlehem service pieces can help raise your congregants’ sensitivity to our connection with the Holy Land, and their prevailing need for peace and justice. We hope you will contact the synod office at 608-788-5000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule use of this special communion ware.
