Communion

St. Andrew serves communion in worship services 8 – 10 times per year, and communion is celebrated weekly has a part of our Wednesday Healing & Wholeness service at 12:15pm.

Who may take communion??

“Christ our Lord invites to his table all who love him, who earnestly repent of their sin and seek to live in peace with one another.”

That means all are welcome to come forward for communion.  Sometimes we serve communion as we kneel at the chancel rail.  If you are unable to kneel, you are welcome to remain standing.  You will be given a wafer or a small bite of bread.  It may be dipped into the grape juice representing the blood of Christ.  Or you may be given a separate, small cup of juice.  At other times we remaining standing and each person files past the servers for the bread and cup.  The pastors do their best to look into the congregation for anyone who is unable to come forward for communion and they take the bread and cup to them.  Advise an usher if you want to assure being served.

Children & Communion:
Children are very welcome to take communion at St. Andrew. We want them to feel included “at the table with God’s family.”
