Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. All are welcome to receive Communion in our church.
Believing that Jesus did not intend there to be restrictions on partaking of the Bread and the Cup, we invite all who consider themselves to be followers of Christ to the Table of our Savior -- regardless of denominational affiliation, Church membership, age, or any other factor.
It is hoped that parents who wish their children to receive Communion are assured that their children have at least a basic understanding of this sacrament as a symbolic meal that helps us to remember Jesus in a very special way. To assist with this goal, our church offers a two-week Communion preparation class each year during Lent.
It is our custom for Deacons to distribute the Bread and the Cup on trays that are passed from pew to pew, and for worshipers to wait until all have been served before partaking. As the Bread is distributed, you may either take one of the “cut” pieces or take a piece off the portion of the whole loaf.
Occasionally at certain services, worshipers may be invited to come forward to receive. It is our custom then to receive by “intinction” whereby each worshiper first takes a piece of bread and then dips it in the common cup – intermingling the two elements before partaking and returning to his or her place in the pew.
