Black and White are the colors for first Sunday in many of the Churches of God in Christ, especially for the clergy. I can remember an Elder being in a panic because he simply forgot to wear the designated colors (black and white) for the first Sunday service.
The women needed to wear all white on, anybody not in the first Sunday attire could not participate in the serving of communion, commemorating the death of our Lord Jesus Christ and the blood shed at Calvary for the sins of man. I used to wonder when I was a young believer, who was more disappointed at a church member in the wrong attire, God, the preacher or the institution?
Every part of the communion ceremony is executed with precision and perfection. Everything was choreographed down to the usher marching down the center isle, back towards the front, after the last element was served.
Near Military Precision
The ushers carefully watched the Elder leading the communion service for signals, watching for the slightest of a hand jester, or head nod to communicate instructions to the servers (preferably an Elder) to move into position. When all participating in communion are served, the servers are assembled at the rear of the church, awaiting their signal from the presiding Elder to march in unison with near military precision to the front of the church facing the presiding Elder.
While I believe there should be order in the place where the people of God assemble, the modern church seems to more of a place where the congregants have been institutionalized and trained to the point, they are dependent of leadership for all they need to appear godly, well-mannered Christians, while in attendance.
