"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. 


LCS Communion Statement: Believing in the real presence of Christ in, with, and under the bread and wine all baptized persons are welcome to receive Communion when worshiping with us. During Communion white wine and red grape juice are offered. Gluten free bread is available upon request. We offer both the common cup of wine and prepared individual cups of wine and grape juice.
