Enid News and Eagle

CARRIER, Okla. — Carrier Congregational Church of the United Church of Christ, 204 N. Fifth, will celebrate “Communion Like It’s 1525” at its monthly worship service at 6 p.m. Sunday.

Pastor Richard Mize will preach in response to 2 Timothy 1:8-10 and give a short presentation on the history and influence of the 16th-century reformer Ulrich Zwingli. Then, the congregation will offer communion in an order of worship following Zwingli’s “Action or Use of the Lord’s Supper,” an order of service for Communion first used on Maundy Thursday, 1525, in Zurich, as the city separated from the Roman Catholic Church.

Carrier Congregational also continues with its regular 11 a.m. service each Sunday. Bible study is at 10 a.m. The class is studying the “Epistle to the Hebrews.”

Carrier Congregational, founded in 1894, is in its 120th year of ministry and worship.
