Demand soars for special communion cups

The coronavirus outbreak is changing numerous things about how church services are held, right down to communion. Blessed Communion in Chicago, the world’s leading provider of individually sealed, prefilled communion cups, is fulfilling increased demand for its sanitary and transportable products.

As churches around the world search for new ways to keep members safe in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, many have turned to the 11-year old small business, because it offers a convenient and touchless way to provide grape juice or wine and wafers to worshippers.

“As a small team, we are grateful to be able to accommodate the orders as churches are learning more about the sanitary prefilled communion cups we have ready for them during this unprecedented public0health event,” company president Kelley Speck said “We are glad to be able to meet the needs and bring peace to so many who embrace our safe and sacred products as top-of-the-line solutions they can count on during this challenging period and beyond.”

Churches using Blessed Communion cups also are now finding they need them now more than ever as services everywhere have moved to remote livestreaming.

“We are hearing from many churches that Blessed Communion cups are an effective way of helping them stay connected with their congregations,” said Israel Idonije, former NFL player and CEO and founder. “Many of these churches are currently doing curbside communion cup pickups and drop-offs to enable their members to still fully enjoy celebrating their faith at home by having access to communion during virtual services.”

The company anticipates that more churches will continue switching over to its recyclable sanitary communion cups even after shelter-in-place orders and other distancing measures are lifted, as increased international demand for safe communion options appears to have reached a tipping point in both remote and onsite services settings.
