Communion

communion 667x456

The Lord’s Supper, or Holy Communion, is the central act for Christians in worship. By participation our faith is nurtured and our lives are strengthened.

This sacrament has its roots in the Jewish Passover festival, which celebrates being delivered from slavery and set on a path to the Promised Land.

Holy Communion reminds Christians of the deliverance that Jesus accomplished for them in his life, death and resurrection.

Using common foods of the day—bread and wine—Jesus took them, blessed them and gave them to his disciples with the words, “This is my body…This is my blood…Do this in remembrance of me.”

In a sacrament the “ordinary” things such as bread and wine become “extraordinary,” and with the word they become the Lord’s presence in a symbolic way.

At Plymouth Church the invitation to partake is open to everyone, including children and those who are not members of our church or our denomination.

Communion is offered weekly at Saturday night worship. It is celebrated at Sunday worship seven or eight times during the year. Our tradition is to serve communion while worshipers are seated, but on Maundy Thursday, people come forward in small groups to be served at tables in the front of the sanctuary.
