FAQ's

Most often, we serve people in the pew. The bread plates and juice trays are distributed to people in the pew. The bread is eaten together as a sign of our unity as the body of Christ. The cup of juice is taken individually.  Occasionally, we invite people who are able to come forward to receive communion. When people come forward they are invited to take and consume a piece of bread and a cup of juice. After receiving communion upfront they return to their seats.  Those who are unable to come forward are served where they are seated.

Everyone is welcome to the table, regardless of their church membership (or lack thereof). Children are also invited to have communion.
