Holy Communion is usually celebrated on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month at both services. All baptized Christians who believe in the presence of Christ through the elements of the bread and wine/grape juice are welcome to communion. Uninstructed children can come forward for a pastoral blessing.
- Altar Rail Communion is offered on the 1st Sunday of the month. Worshippers come forward, kneel at the rail and commune by eating portions of unleavened bread and drinking wine or grape juice.
- Intinction Communion is offered on the 3rd Sunday of the month. Worshippers come forward, receive a bread wafer, dip it into the wine or grape juice and consume both at the same time.
|Receiving of the wafer||Dipping wafer into wine|
Since Holy Commuion is one of the holiest rites of the church, FLC provides communion instruction for those who have been baptized but have not yet communed. Pastor Sara offers first communion instruction that includes the baking of unleavened bread. The church traditoinally celebrates first commuion for fourth graders and other children/adults on Maundy Thursday.
