Communion (Lord’s Supper)

Jesus instituted the Lord’s Supper on the night before he was arrested and went to his death as a sacrament of remembering and eating together.  When we take the bread and wine (or juice) at communion, we are remembering his broken body and poured out blood.  We know that just as the actual bread and wine nourish our bodies, Christ is nourishing our spirits and building us up in our faith, trust, and hope.  We use two alternating methods of serving communion: Coming forward and intincting (dipping bread into cup), or being served in our pews as the elements are passed in trays.  All who desire to follow Christ and be nourished by him are invited to participate.
