Holy Communion

We practice open communion weekly as we welcome all who honor Christ as their Savior to receive His true body and blood in our holy sacrament.  Both white grape juice and wine are offered.  Gluten-free wafers are available.  Children are invited forward for a blessing.  Our ushers will assist with any questions.
