Communion

CS communion (c)At Central Presbyterian, The Lord’s Supper is celebrated on the first Sunday of the month at both services of worship, and at other special worship services throughout the church year. All who desire may participate including baptized children and are welcome to receive Communion. Our table upon which the loaf and cup are set, is the Lord’s table and open to all people.

Receiving the Lord’s Supper/Communion
The Lord’s Supper/Communion is received in two ways at Central Presbyterian. At the 9:00 a.m. Celebration Service, Communion is received by intinction or dipping. At the appropriate time in the service, worshipers come forward, take a piece of bread off the loaf, dip it in the cup (grape juice), and place in their mouth as they return to their seats.

At the 11 a.m. Traditional Service, the communion elements are served to worshipers in the pews. Each element – the bread and the cup (grape juice)– are held until all have been served and then consumed as a group when directed.  Gluten free bread is available at both services.
