Photo by Norman Schimmel WORLD COMMUNION SUNDAY TO BE CELEBRATED ON OCT. 6 First United Methodist Church, located at 104 S. Pineapple Ave. in downtown Sarasota, invites all residents of the community to join its members for a special worship service on Sunday, Oct. 6, at 10 a.m. in the sanctuary. In this celebration of World Communion Sunday, the Rev. Pam Carter, wife of presiding Florida Conference Bishop Ken Carter, "will share her passion for the impoverished people of Haiti" and her vision for the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church to package 1 million meals this year in partnership with Stop Hunger Now, a news release says. Before and after the service, worshippers will be invited to help First Church prepare 10,000 meals towards this initiative, the release adds. The cost is only 25 cents per meal, the release points out. All attending the World Communion Sunday service will be asked to consider making a gift offering to help cover the cost of that mission, the release adds. For additional information, call the church office at 955-0935. %
