The Lord's Supper
Our Savior knows our spiritual needs. He, therefore, tells us to partake of the Lord’s Supper “often.” A Christian will want to come to the sacrament often in order that our faith may be strengthened by the assurance of God’s forgiveness, which is offered to us in the Lord’s Supper. 

The Lord’s Supper is celebrated on the first and third Sundays of each month. The Lord’s Supper is also served on Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, and New Year’s Eve. Prompted by a loving concern for the faith of others, we ask that only members of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) and the Evangelical Lutheran Synod (ELS) join us in the sacrament. If you have friends or relatives (WELS or ELS) worshipping with you on a communion Sunday, please ask them to identify themselves to the pastor prior to the service. 

By this action we are not judging anyone’s faith. Our primary concern is not to judge or to exclude people from the sacrament. We want to ensure, as far as this is possible, that those who receive the sacrament are truly worthy guests, so that they will not take it to their judgment. We also want the celebration of the Lord’s Supper to be an expression of the true and substantial oneness of faith in Jesus Christ.  

If you have friends or relatives of a different faith worshipping with you on a communion Sunday, please inform them of our Close Communion practices. If they have any questions, please encourage them to speak to the pastor, who will be happy to discuss it with them. 

Private communion for those who are “shut-ins” and unable to attend church is offered on a regular basis. When an individual is hospitalized or seriously ill and desires the Lord’s Supper, the pastor will be most willing to serve him or her with private communion. To make arrangements, please contact the pastor.
