The Sacrament of Holy Communion

stlukes3
Like many other Protestant traditions, we recognize two sacraments – Baptism and Holy Communion.  These two sacraments were instituted by Jesus and are recorded in the Bible.  We celebrate Communion the first Sunday of each month and for special events.  Individual Communion is also available. All present are invited to receive the bread and the wine (or grape juice) which represent the body and blood of Christ.  Before eating and drinking the pastor declares, “Take and eat this bread (or drink this wine) in memory of the body (or blood) of Christ.”
