Holy Communion


Because of the real, bodily presence of Jesus Christ in, with and under the bread and wine of the Sacrament, the Holy Communion is not to be received without significant preparation. In keeping with Scripture, visitors who are active members of LCMS congregations (or from church bodies in fellowship with the LCMS) are asked to speak with the pastor or elder prior to the Sacrament. All other visitors are asked to make an appointment with the pastor to discuss the Lord’s Supper prior to receiving the Sacrament here.

This is not a judgment of an individual’s faith, but a matter of proper preparation and pastoral care of souls. (1 Corinthians 11:26-30) 

For further information about our communion practice, please see the brochure "What About Fellowship in the Lord's Supper" in the brochure rack in the narthex. Thank you for your deference to the Biblical doctrine of this congregation.
