Communion Statement
The Lord's Supper is celebrated at this congregation in the confession and glad confidence that, as He says, our Lord gives into our mouths not only bread and wine but His very body and blood to eat and drink for the forgiveness of sins and to strengthen our union with Him and with one another.  Our Lord invites to His table those who trust His words, repent of all sin, and set aside any refusal to forgive and love as He forgives and loves us, that they may show forth His death until He comes.  If you desire to commune, please read the following:



We follow the historic practice of close communion (sharing a Biblical unity of faith and doctrine before communing together).  Please therefore examine yourself (1 Corinthians 11:27-32) to see if you can joyfully embrace our Biblical confession regarding the Sacrament of the Altar:

If this statement is also your sincere confession of faith, you are invited to commune with us.  If this statement does not reflect your confession of faith, please refrain from communing and speak with the pastor at your earliest opportunity.
