We believe that according to Christ's command and promise, in giving Holy Communion, we are receiving the very body and blood of our Savior, Jesus, through faith in Him - He is really present, in, with and under the elements of bread and wine.
The Spirit implores us to examine ourselves in the understanding of what it means to partake of this gift, lest we take it to our harm. If you are baptized and believe these convictions you are invited to commune with us! If you have questions about your participation, please speak with our Pastor.
Children are welcome to come forward to receive a blessing by our Pastor. In helping you prepare for Communion, there are prayers for you to use on the inside cover of the burgandy hymnals, and a review of the truths we believer on page 326, "The Sacrament of the Altar."
For those with health concerns, gluten-free wafers are available. Please take the lid off yourself and take a wafer as the container comes to you. Also, cups of non-alcoholic wine are offered in the center of the communion tray.
While communion is being celebrated and your brothers and sisters are coming and going from the altar, take a moment to pray for them and their families. Even if you don't know them by name, lift them up to the LORD God. Then, following worship, make it a point to introduce yourself to those you don't know and learn their names.
