We celebrate Holy Communion
The Lord’s Supper is celebrated at Grace Lutheran Church in the confession and glad confidence that, as our Lord says, He gives into our mouths not only bread and wine but His very, true, body and blood to eat and to drink for the forgiveness of sins and to strengthen His union with us and our union with one another (Matthew 26:26-29; 1 Corinthians 11:24-25).
Our Lord invites to His Table of Holy Communion people who trust His words, repent of all sin, and set aside any refusal to forgive and love as He forgives and loves (Matthew 18:15-35), so that we may faithfully proclaim His death until He comes (1 Corinthians 11:26).
Eating and drinking our Lord’s body and blood without believing what our Lord says about it is spiritually harmful (1 Corinthians 11:27). So if you are not yet instructed in, unsure about, or in disagreement with the confession of this congregation, and yet desire to receive this sacrament, please speak with Pastor Kevin before doing so.
Children and adults who do not receive Holy Communion are welcome to come to the communion rail and instead receive a blessing.
A common cup is offered following the tray of individual cups.
If you or someone you are with is unable to physically come to the altar, please alert an usher to arrange for the pastor to bring communion to your pew.
