Is the Service at which we celebrate The Lord's Supper. What a joy! What a privilege! In The Sacrament our Lord gives into our mouths not only bread and wine, but also His very Body and Blood to eat and drink. In this Sacrament He assures us that our sins are forgiven and He strengthens our faith.
Both common cup and Individual cup will be received at the same time; afterward the individual cups should be placed in the bowls as you return to your seat.
Holy Communion guests please read: The Sacred Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions teach that prior to a person's receiving the Lord's Supper that a person needs to be (1) Baptized in the name of the Triune God, (2)instructed in the meaning of the Sacrament and (3) be able to examine himself or herself.
The following questions are helpful in this self-examination prior to receiving the Lord's Supper.
Visitors need to speak with our pastor or an elder before receiving the Sacrament. Thank you for honoring this practice.
- Do I believe that I am a sinful human being without hope of eternal life except for God's mercy in Christ?
- Do I believe that Jesus Christ is God's Son and my personal Savior?
- Do I believe that He is personally present in the Sacrament of Holy Communion with His Body and Blood?
- Do I desire by the power of the Holy Spirit to live a Godly life?
Communion Sunday is usually the Second and Fourth Sunday of each month.
