I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be be thirsty”. (John 6:35b)

communionCommunion is the family feast of the people of God. It is a sacrament, a sign and seal, of the work of the Holy Spirit. At the Lord’s Table we join with Christians of every time and place in the communion of the Holy Spirit. At the table, we are received as beloved children of God, and nourished for our lives in the world. At the table we participate in the drama of redemption history witnessing to the gospel until Christ comes again. The broken bread and the poured cup are the gifts of God for the people of God.
“While they were eating, Jesus took a loaf of bread, and after blessing it he broke it, gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.” Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you; for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.” (Matthew 26: 26-28)

The table is Christ’s and so all believers are welcome, including children. Communion is usually served on the first Sunday of the month and on special holy days. It is always an act of the community of faith, but can be brought to the home bound at your request. See the calendar for next time we’ll gather for the Lord’s Supper.

“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with all of you.” (2nd Corinthians 13:13)
