The Lord's Supper

Communion022The Lord's Supper (Communion) at St. John's is practiced as an open table; those who commune at other Christian churches are welcomed and encouraged to participate.

 

The belief of this congregation is:

Participation in the Lord's Supper is the reception of the body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, given with bread and wine, instituted by Christ himself for us to eat and drink. We hold that a person is well-prepared and worthy who believes these words: "Given and shed for you for the remission of sins."

Those who do not commune may come forward for a blessing, for all are loved by God.

 

Communion is served by intinction. You will receive the bread in your palm and dip it into your choice of either the red wine or the white grape juice before placing it in your mouth.

 

On the first full weekend of each month, we offer both intinction and the common cup.
