Each month a different member of Central provides Communion Bread for worship. Currently, there are eight of us in the rotation. A new monthly rotation begins in May, so this would be a great time to join in! Those in the rotation are assigned a month, which can adjusted if need be, and then bake enough bread for the number of Sundays in that month. Typically, people bake the bread before the first Sunday of the month and then bring all the loaves to church on the first Sunday; loaves not used that Sunday are frozen for use throughout the rest of the month.

So far, we have all used the same quick and simple recipe, which is listed below. However, you could use any recipe you like. If you are interested in joining the rotation, or have questions, please contact me.


Pastor Jim


2 cups whole wheat flour 
1 cup white flour
1 ¼ teaspoons baking powder
1 ¼ teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon oil
¾ cup and 2 tablespoons very hot water
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons molasses

Preheat oven to 350°.
Mix together flour, baking powder, and salt.
Cut oil into flour mixture. 
In a separate bowl, combine and mix well the hot water, honey and molasses. 
Combine flour mixture and sweetener mixture. Dough should be a bit sticky.
Divide into 4 or 5 equal parts and roll each into ½ inch thick circles. 
Using a knife, mark each circle with a cross.
Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 350° for 10 minutes. 
Remove and brush with oil. 
Bake an additional 5-8 minutes. 

(We may need to begin doubling the recipe and making larger loaves due to increased worship attendance.)
