Holy Communion is the highest sacrament of the United Methodist Church. This sacrament is often called by other names, including the Lord's Supper, the Last Supper and Eucharist. The United Methodist Church recognizes only baptism and Holy Communion as sacraments because they were the only acts ordained by Christ.
In Holy Communion, we remember and proclaim God's saving work through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We are reminded again of the gifts of God's grace and forgiveness given to each of us. In communion, we celebrate what God is doing among us and in us.
In the United Methodist Church, Holy Communion is open to all persons. You do not have to be a member to participate.
Communion is served in the Firestone Chapel (Building B) after all weekend services and in the Wesley Covenant Chapel (Building C) following the 7:45am service on Sundays.
Communion is served in the Sanctuary (Building B) once a month, typically on first weekend of the month.
People often ask about our bread. Our communion bread is purchased through Great Harvest Bread Company (franchises are located throughout the country).
We use Honey Whole Wheat Rounds for our altar loaves.
We serve our congregation whole wheat breadsticks that have been sliced by Great Harvest.
We offer gluten/allergen-free bread at a station serving only gluten/allergen-free bread in the Sanctuary and at Vibe each month. Our gluten/allergen-free bread is the vegan sandwich bread from Mama Resch's Gluten-Free Bakery. (Gluten-free wafers are available in all other locations)
