CHECKLIST FOR INDIVIDUAL CUP METHOD
Ensure the cup and bread trays are clean.
Prepare enough cup and bread trays to serve the number of persons anticipated for the service.
Have extra cups and hosts available.
Place small cups into the holes in the cup trays (see Figure 3-2).
Fill the cups not more than 3/4 full by using a commercial cup filler or a crimped paper cup.
If both wine and grape juice are used in the service, fill the outer two rings of cups in each
cup tray with grape juice and the remaining inner cups in each cup tray with wine. (It is
suggested that a white wine be used to distinguish it from the grape juice.)
If only grape juice is used in the service, fill all forty cups in each cup tray with grape juice.
If only wine is used in the service, fill all forty cups in each cup tray with wine.
If any wine or grape juice spills onto the trays, wipe it off prior to the service.
Stack the filled cup trays no more than four high, place them on the base, and place the cover on
the top cup tray.
Fill the bread trays. The chaplain will decide whether to use communion hosts, wafers, crackers,
or bread. The amount of bread used should be enough to serve a little more than the number of
persons anticipated for the service.
Prepare the altar for the individual cup method of communion service (see Figure 3-1).
