During this first phase of reopening, the Lord's Supper will not be celebrated during the in-person worship service on Sunday mornings. To receive the Lord’s Supper, you will need to sign-up for a private, outdoor Communion service beginning the week of August 3rd. These services will be very brief (~10 minutes) and will take place under a canopy on the back lawn of the church building by the office entrance. Street parking is available on Winthrop Street. You may also park in the parsonage driveway. Please bring a lawn chair if standing for the duration of the service is too much. Please note that, if the weather is too severe, appointments will have to be rescheduled.

Our communion policy
The Bible teaches us that...
...we are sinners who were born dead in sin.
...we need God's forgiveness and salvation.
...we are saved by grace through faith in Jesus alone.
...Jesus is truly present in, with, and under the bread and wine of the Lord's Supper (Holy Communion).
...Jesus' body and blood are given and shed for us for the forgiveness of our sins.
If you are baptized and believe what we believe, we welcome you to come to receive Christ's body and blood for the forgiveness of your sins.
If you are unsure about the Christian faith, what we believe, or have questions, you're probably not ready to commune...and that's OK. God still loves you and still wants you to come to know Him more closely.
