Connecting with
Christ in the
Lord’s Supper

Holy Communion is integral to the worship life of the baptized at Immanuel.

In accordance with Scripture and the Lutheran Confessions, we keep this sacrament by our Lord’s command, “Take and eat… take and drink… for the remembrance of me,” and by his promise, “my body given for you” and “my blood shed for you for the forgiveness of sin.” As we by bread and cup eat the body and drink the blood of Christ’s death for our sins, we share also in his resurrection for our life.

Baptized guests who regularly commune at their home congregation and share this understanding are welcome to commune with us and our Lord’s table. Guests, including children of guests, who have never received Communion are invited to receive a blessing until you have spoken with one of the pastors about proper preparation for receiving Christ’s Body and Blood.

Children & the
Lord’s Supper

We hold first Communion preparation sessions for 3rd graders every year during Lent. Contact the church office or one of the pastors for exact dates and times. Parents also have the option of preparing children at home using materials available in the church office. Since practices surrounding children and first Communion vary among Lutherans, we also honor those who choose to wait until confirmation.Children who have not yet prepared for Communion are welcome to come forward with their families and receive a blessing during Communion.
