Welcome to Worship

Holy Communion

Holy Communion, or the Lord’s Supper, is a sacrament: an act of worship ordained by Christ and a means of grace. Together with our brothers and sisters in Christ we break bread and drink from the cup at the Lord’s Table as Jesus Christ asked his followers to do in 1 Corinthians 11:24 (“ Do this in remembrance of me . . . ")

The Lord’s Supper is celebrated during worship on the first Sunday in each month and during other special services as occasion calls.

The elements of bread and wine (unfermented grape juice in United Methodist churches) are used. Gluten free wafers are available at the rail.

Holy Communion is a family meal: all who intend to lead a Christian life, together with their children (including young children), are welcome and are invited to receive the bread and cup. We have no tradition of refusing anyone who desires to partake in the Lord’s Supper.

Holy Communion or the Lord’s Supper is a mystery whose meaning will vary for each of us and from one time to another. For more information, click here.
