Instructions for Communion this Easter

Because of the Covid-19 pandemic and the continued need for social isolation, we will be celebrating the Lord’s Supper as follows this Easter.  We have purchased pre-packaged communion elements that have a small wafer sealed on top of a small cup of grape juice.  These can be picked up on Easter before our online services between 7:00-7:45am and 9:30-10:15 amPlease take these home and watch our streaming services at 8:00am and 10:30am.  When it is time for communion during these services you can unseal the elements and we will all commune together.


Communion Element Pick Up

Please enter the rear parking lot off of Norman (west of Church) and proceed to those distributing the elements near the rear door.  Leave the lot via Frederick (east of Church).  Do not get out of your car.  You make take the number of cups necessary for those communing in your household and for any that you may be delivering to shut in members of the congregation.  If you need gluten free wafers, please indicate this to those distributing.  We will not be accepting offerings at that time.


The Lord’s Supper and the Consecration of the Elements

The New Testament offers very little instruction as to how to conduct the Lord’s Supper.  It is the understanding of the LCMS that celebration of the Lord’s Supper is a congregational event versus and individual or family event.  We also believe that the bread and wine are the body and blood of Christ only during the context of celebrating the Lord’s Supper, not before or after, unlike the Roman Catholic Church.  Therefore, there is no such thing as pre-consecrated elements.
