"While they were eating, he took a loaf of bread, and after blessing it he broke it, gave it to them, and said, ‘Take; this is my body.’ Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks he gave it to them, and all of them drank from it. He said to them, ‘This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many." - Mark 14: 22-24

Communion, along with Holy Baptism, is one of two sacraments observed in the Lutheran Church. In Holy Communion God:

  • forgives our sins
  • strengthens our faith
  • joins us together with the community of faith 
  • empowers us for service in the community/world

Lutherans believe in the real presence of Jesus Christ in, with, and under the elements (bread and wine) so that through a holy mystery we receive the body and blood of Jesus at Communion. 

At LCS we practice eucharistic hospitality and all baptized persons are welcome to receive Communion. We offer both white wine and red grape juice, and gluten free bread is available upon request. We offer both a common cup of wine, and individual cups of wine or grape juice.
