I'll have to check. I do know that an ordained Elder in the church can celebrate both Communion and Baptism. Stan is an Elder, although he is not presently serving in that capacity. I think that perhaps in the Reformed Church, it is possible for members to celebrate Communion without the presence of an ordained minister. "Where two or three are gathered..." comes to mind. I have an email in to our pastor and will let you know what I find out. We have taken Communion to my parents' home with the minister and Stan acting as the Celebrants.

edited to say that yes, as long as there is an Elder present to administer the sacrament, you don't need a Minister. And as far as the sacrament goes, when Stan was an acting elder, I made the bread and we bought the grape juice at the supermarket. Not quite the same in the Catholic church where the sacrament must all be consumed by the congregation or the priest before the end of the service. Our leftovers turned into croutons or bird food and juice for the kids.
