Welcome to our Visitors!

Holy Communion

Those who are baptized and believe that Jesus Christ, crucified and risen, is truly present in, with, and under the forms of bread and wine for the forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation, are welcome to the Lord’s Table. Please let the pastor know you wish to receive this gift of life by holding out your open hands. Receive the wafer, move to one of the servers and dip the wafer into the wine, then partake. You are encouraged to bring young children forward for a blessing. The sign for a blessing is folded hands.
