About Communion

Communion (The Lord’s Supper) is a symbol of what Jesus did for us on the cross.  It is a tangible way to show followers of Jesus that He gave His body for us and died in our place (the bread) and forgave our sins by shedding His blood (juice).  It is an act of worship and a very meaningful practice for many people.  

Questions About Faith

About Communion

This practice is intended to be taken by those who have already made a profession of faith or have made the decision to follow Jesus Christ.  However, it is important to be reminded that it is not up to us to determine who will and will not take communion, that decision is between the individual and God.    

About Communion

Our job as a facilitator of communion is to invite all who are willing to share in this practice and explain the significance of this symbol to those who are involved.


Originally, bread and wine were used to symbolize the body and blood of Jesus.  Because they were used as symbols, you can substitute just about anything for the bread and wine.

Typically, we use crackers and juice.  You can go to the grocery store and purchase crackers (saltine or oyster) and buy grape juice and serve it in paper or plastic cups.
