(also known as the Lord’s Supper, or Eucharist, meaning “thanksgiving”)
The sacrament of communion is served on the first Sunday of each month at both services.
In this sacrament, we ask the Holy Spirit to use bread and wine to make visible the grace, forgiveness and presence of God in Christ. Communion recalls the last meal Jesus shared with His disciples on the night before His death. Through communion, we celebrate not only the memory of a meal that is past, but an actual meal with the risen Christ in the present.
Communion is :
A joyous act of thanksgiving for all God has done, is doing and will do for the redeeming of creation.
A sacred memorial of the crucified and risen Christ, a living and effective sign of Christ’s sacrifice in which Christ is truly and rightly present to those who eat and drink.
An earnest prayer to unite those who partake with the Risen Christ and with each other, and to renew all of creation.
An intimate experience of fellowship in which the whole church in every time and place is present and divisions are overcome.
A hopeful sign of the promised Realm of God marked by justice, love and peace.
All are invited to the Lord’s table. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never been to church, or what church you have been to . . . ALL ARE INVITED.
