Can I take communion?
The Lord’s Supper is celebrated every Sunday except “Friend Days.”  Lutherans believe that our Lord’s body and blood are truly present “in, with and under” the elements of bread and wine in the Supper and is given to us for the forgiveness of our sins and the strengthening of our faith.  All communicants should have received Christian Baptism and have faith in these words of Christ, “This is my Body given for you. This is my Blood shed for you for the forgiveness of sins.” Instruction in this and the Lutheran confessions takes place at any of the following: First Communion preparation, Confirmation, Membership classes, and Instruction with the pastor. For any of these contact the Church office. Visitors who wish to receive Communion should contact the pastor the week prior. If you will not be receiving the Sacrament, you may remain in your pew or come forward for a blessing by crossing your arms over your chest as a sign that you will not be receiving. We offer wine in individual cups and the chalice (to receive from the chalice put hands together in prayer at when at the altar). Non-alcoholic white wine is located in the center of the individual cups tray. Gluten-free wafers are available, please request from distribution server.
