Baptized adult Christians (any denomination) who know they need God's daily forgiveness, and who believe that the body and blood of Jesus Christ are truly present in the Lord's Supper are invited to share this great gift of God with us. Children who have been baptized and have received instruction in Communion are also invited. All others are encouraged to come to the Communion rail to receive a blessing.
Jesus called us to celebrate Holy Communion until he returns so that we may have assurance of forgiveness of sins, strengthening of faith, and the power to live God-pleasing lives. God's Word tells us that when we receive the Lord's Supper, we are not merely receiving bread and wine, but in a mysterious way, we are receiving the real body and blood of Jesus Christ. Jesus said in Matthew 26:26-30, "This is my body, this is my blood"
If you have doubts or do not understand our beliefs about the Lord's Supper, please contact Pastor Heidi Calhoun.
White grape juice is available at the altar for those who prefer it over wine. Gluten wafers are also available at the altar. The Communion Assistant will help you with either preference.
