Since the days of the Apostles, the church’s communion practice has remained constant. It follows I Corinthians 10 and 11, where the Apostle Paul warns the Church to know the true Body and Blood of Christ is in and with the bread and wine. St. Paul warns, “Whoever, therefore, east the bread of drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord. Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body east and drinks judgment on himself.” If you are uncertain of whether you should partake of the Lord’s Supper with us, please talk to our pastor or an elder before communing. Elders will be at the rear of the sanctuary and will be wearing an “Elder” badge.
If you choose not to partake of communion, you may still come up to the Lord’s Table to receive a blessing from the pastor. Children may also come up for a blessing from the pastor.
For those who choose, non-alcoholic wine is provided in the center of the trays of individual cups.
