Holy Communion, also known as, The Lord’s Supper
Our Lord Jesus Christ, on the night when He was betrayed, took bread, and when He had given thanks, He broke it and gave it to the disciples and said: “Take, eat; this is my body, which is given for you. This do in remembrance of me”. In the same way also He took the cup after supper, and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them, saying: “Drink of it, all of you; this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for you for the forgiveness of sins. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”
The Lord’s Supper is celebrated in the confidence that, as He says, 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 sins and to strengthen and preserve the believer in the true faith through life everlasting.
The Invitation to the Lord’s Supper
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 receiving the Lord’s Supper at the altar of Grace, are confessing that they believe in the confessions of Grace Lutheran and the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. Anyone not yet instructed, in doubt, or who holds a differing confession is asked first to speak with the Pastor or an Elder.
