COMMUNION POLICY
We believe that the true Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ are truly present and received by us in the Sacrament along with bread and wine for the forgiveness of sins. Scriptural principles of Communion fellowship require that all who partake of the Sacrament believe this and are in doctrinal agreement with those with whom they are receiving the Sacrament. In accordance with this practice, known as closed Communion, visitors who are members of other Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod congregations or congregations of church bodies in official altar and pulpit fellowship with LCMS are invited to commune with us, but are kindly asked to announce their intentions to the pastor before the service.
