Communion

How often do you celebrate Holy Communion?
We celebrate Holy Communion the first Sunday of every month. 

We also celebrate communion on Ash Wednesday and Maundy Thursday and at some of our Thursday evening worship services.

Who may take communion?
At St. John's everyone is welcome to take part in communion; members, non-members, adults and children whose parents feel they are ready.  If you don't feel comfortable taking communion, that's OK too.


Do you use wine or grape juice?
Both. Wine is in the outer circles of the tray. Grape juice is in the center ring for those who would like that instead.


What about the bread?

We use regular bread, but we do have a gluten free bread for those that need it.  Just raise your hand during the distribution of the bread, and one of the pastors will bring it to you.
