Communion

Holy Communion is offered the First Sunday of each month in all of our morning services.

Like Baptism, Holy Communion is regarded by Protestants as a sacrament. That is, it is an act of worship ordained by Christ and is a means of grace. That does not mean that we become any more worthy of God's grace by taking part in Communion. Rather, we open ourselves to the divine love that's already there; we become more ready to receive that love and to respond to it.

As with baptism, we use common, physical gifts of the earth, bread and wine—though in United Methodist churches we prefer unfermented grape juice.

All Christians are welcome at our table, whatever their denomination. Holy Communion is a family meal, and all Christians are members of Christ’s family. Therefore, in each congregation, when we receive the bread and cup, we join with millions of brothers and sisters across the ages and around the world.
