Communion is also known as the Lord’s Supper. This sacrament invites those who love Jesus Christ to gather at his table and share in a meal of bread and wine, remembering his last meal with his disciples before his death. Communion unites us with all Christians throughout the world who worship Jesus as Lord and Savior. Through this sacramental meal, we are given nourishment for our journey of faith as disciples of Christ.
We celebrate communion the first Sunday of each month in our Sunday morning worship service and in the contemplative service on the third Sunday evening of each month at 7 p.m., during the months of September through May. Sometimes communion is served in trays that are passed in the pews. At other times, worshipers come forward and receive the bread and cup at the front of the sanctuary.
