We generally 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.
Most of the time, we celebrate Communion by coming forward and being served individually by intinction (dipping pieces of bread into one large cup.) After the meal, worshipers who choose may kneel at the railing for a blessing and anointment.
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. All may be nourished for service through this ritual sharing of God’s grace made visible.
