A church in Centreville, VA with gluten free communion Jun 04, 2014
reviewer: Love2eatjustnotwheat from Centreville, VA

Gluten, dairy, nut, corn, soy (and of course wheat)-free communion wafers are available at all services. Communion is the 1st Sunday of the month at the 9:30 am and 11:00 am services, and every week at the 8:15 am and 11:02 am services. The 8:15, 9:30, and 11:00 services are in the sanctuary, and the 11:02 is a contemporary service in the gym. The gluten-free wafers are kept separate from the other communion bread, and when you come up to receive communion, you simply come to a line with a pastor and request gluten free communion. They will get the tray from the altar, which contains the gluten free wafers and a separate cup and allow you to serve yourself by taking a communion wafer and dipping it in the cup. In this way, the servers don't touch the gluten free elements after touching the regular communion bread. They've thought of everything: procedures are in place to avoid cross-contact with gluten when placing the GF communion out and putting it away. Also, the regular gluten-containing communion bread is dairy-free. The United Methodist Church practices open communion, which means that you do not have to be a member of this congregation or this denomination to partake. It's beautiful to feel so included. Highly recommended!

Fantastic Gluten Free pizza in Fairfax, Virginia! Oct 16, 2013
reviewer: Love2eatjustnotwheat from Centreville, VA

We ate at California Pizza kitchen in Fairfax Corner last weekend and was surprised to see gluten free pizzas back on the menu. I was suspicious after their last attempt to introduce gluten free pizza a couple of years ago, so I started asking questions. The waiter was thoroughly knowledgeable about procedures used to eliminate cross-contact with gluten, and I noted the menu said that they had been trained by the Gluten Intolerance Group. I asked the manager how long the gluten free pizza had been back on the menu and she told me two weeks. She also added that they are taking gluten free seriously this time.

That said, we ordered the BBQ chicken pizza and it was excellent! At this time, there are only 4 pizzas listed on their gluten free pizza menu. We were told that those were the ones that were safe for those with a gluten "allergy", however they could put any toppings on the GF crust, but could not guarantee that the resulting product would be completely free of gluten. I really want to see some of my other favorites on the "truly gluten free" menu, such as 5 cheese & tomato and BLT!
