Holy Communion

"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:

  • continues to forgive sins 
  • strengthens our faith
  • joins us together with the community of faith 
  • empowers us for service in the community/world
  • gives us the true body and blood of Jesus Christ in the bread and wine

Communion: Lutherans believe that Jesus Christ is truly present in the bread and wine of Holy Communion. We welcome all baptized persons to receive Communion when worshiping with us, or you may come forward for a blessing instead simply indicate this to our pastor by bowing your head and keeping your hands below the Communion rail.  

During Communion white wine and red grape juice are offered in individual cups. Gluten free wafers are available upon request.
