What is communion?
Communion, also known as the Lord's Supper or Eucharist, is Christ's gift to the church.
On the night in which he was betrayed, Jesus took bread, gave thanks, broke it, and shared it with his disciples. "This is my body that is for you," he said. "Do this in remembrance of me." He also took a cup of wine and said, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this as often as you drink it in remembrance of me."
Following Jesus' example and instruction, when the church celebrates the Lord's Supper we receive gifts of bread and juice; we give thanks to God; we break the bread and pour the wine; we share the food and drink with each other. The Lord's Supper is a means by which Christ continually nourishes, strengthens and comforts us.
What happens during communion?
Through our prayers and the sharing of bread and wine, we are joined to Christ and through Christ to each other. During Communion we remember what God has done for us. The past event of our Lord's death, resurrection and ascension comes into the present so that its power once again touches us, changes us, and heals us. We gather at the table with joy, eating and drinking to celebrate our risen Lord.
If you believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior,
you are welcome to join us.
