Mrs. Elihu Bone, Mrs. Robert Bone and Mrs. Jacob Schnapp prepared the communion elements for ninety years. In a very early day these were served on a long table around which the communicants gathered. Later they were served in the pew from a plate and cup. At the present day an individual commun ion set, the gift of Mrs. Henry Colby, is used.
The pulpit Bible now in use and the preceding one were gifts of Mrs. Elihu Bone.
