We celebrate Communion on the first Sunday of each month and during other special worship services throughout the year. This meal of bread and non-alcoholic grape juice recalls and celebrates the Lord’s Supper and is a sign of community and acceptance. By participating in Communion, we receive and trust the love of Christ present to us and to the world.
At some services, trays containing the bread and individual cups are passed to us in the pews. Other times we come forward and are either served in groups at the rail or individually by intinction (dipping pieces of bread into one large cup.) Whatever the format, we are nourished for service through this ritual sharing of God’s grace made visible.
We’re not the hosts of this meal – Jesus Christ is the host and has already invited you to the table. Whether you trust in Jesus or are still seeking, no one desiring to receive communion will be turned away. The table is open to all who respond to Christ’s love, no matter what their age or church affiliation.
