Holy Communion, or the Lord’s Supper, originated in the Passover Meal to which Jesus gave new meaning on the night before his crucifixion. We believe it is through this common meal (symbolized with the bread and cup) that we experience Christ present among us. United Methodists believe Christ is present as Spirit, not actual flesh and blood. We celebrate open communion-regardless of church affiliation- all are welcome to celebrate communion. While children may not understand the full meaning of this sacrament, they are invited to share in it as a part of God’s family. Communion is offered on the first Sunday of the month and on Maundy Thursday.
