We celebrate Holy Communion every week. Located in each of our pews is a Welcome Card that contains our Communion Policy. Please take a minute to fill in that card and read our communion policy before communing. Cards will be collected by an usher before your pew is dismissed for communion. If you're new to St. John's or have questions, our pastor would love to speak with you!
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 the altar and receive Christ's body and blood for the forgiveness of your sins. Again, please fill out the Welcome Card and hand it to an usher during the distribution of the Lord's Supper.
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. We still welcome you to come forward during distribution and receive a blessing. Simply cross your arms over your chest while you are at the railing.
