Holy Communion is a ritual celebrated by Christians worldwide. Each denomination of Christianity celebrates it a little different. We celebrate communion as a reminder of God’s love for us and the promise of redemption made in the death and resurrection of Christ Jesus. We remember the words Jesus spoke to his friends at the Passover table in the days leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion. Jesus broke bread and shared wine with his friends telling them to remember him whenever they do so. Today when we eat the bread representing Christ’s body and drink from the cup representing the promise of redemption and the forgiveness of sins, we remember that God loves us beyond any understanding we could possibly imagine. In the act of communion we offer ourselves as holy and living sacrifice promising to be the hands and feet of Christ to the world.
Communion is open to everyone who seeks a relationship with God. No matter your faith history, or however many bad things you may have done Jesus always leaves a seat open at the table for you. We do not turn anyone away from the communion table. We practice the intinction method of communion where you are handed a piece of bread and then invited to dip it into a chalice of grape juice. Communion is served on the 1st Sunday of each month. A gluten free option is always available.
