Holy Communion

Holy Communion is a multifaceted meal instituted by Jesus Christ at the Last Supper.  The tangible elements of bread and juice (or wine) are physical reminders of the body and blood of Christ.  Christ’s body was broken for us as a willing sacrifice and Christ’s blood was shed for us to atone for our sins.  We do not believe in transubstantiation, which means that the elements are physically transformed into the body and blood of Christ, but rather are physical reminders that we can see, touch, and taste to remember and give thanks.  As part of the United Methodist Church, we practice open Communion.  This means that the Sacrament of Holy Communion is served to everyone regardless of church membership or profession of faith.  Scripture says that you are welcome at the table of the Lord when you earnestly repent of your sins, seek to live in harmony with others, and desire to begin a life-giving relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
