If you are not a member of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, please see the communion statement below.
The Lord’s Supper is celebrated every Sunday at Trinity as part of the Divine Service. It is in the confession and glad confidence that our Lord gives into our mouths not only bread and wine but His very body and blood to eat and to drink for the forgiveness of our sins and to strengthen our union with him and with one another.
Our Lord invites to his table those who trust His words, repent of all sin, and set aside any refusal to forgive and love as He forgives and loves us, that they may show forth His death until he comes.
Those who eat and drink our Lord’s body and blood unworthily do so to great harm to themselves.
Holy Communion is a confession of the faith which is confessed at Trinity’s altar.
Any who are not yet instructed, in doubt, or who hold a confession differing from that of Trinity and The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod should refrain from receiving the Communion.
