Holy Communion
Baptism and Holy Communion are recognized and practiced by members of the United Methodist Church as they were the only acts ordained by Christ. Holy Communion is the highest sacrament of the United Methodist Church.

This sacrament is often called by other names, including the Lord's Supper, the Last Supper and Eucharist. In Holy Communion, we remember and proclaim God's saving work through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We are reminded again of the gifts of God's grace and forgiveness given to each of us. In communion, we celebrate what God is doing among us and in us.

In the United Methodist Church, Holy Communion is open to all persons. You do not have to be a member of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, the United Methodist Church or any other church to participate. Anyone who is willing to confess, repent and seek to live a new life in Christ is welcome to participate.

We typically take communion by way of intinction.  As you come forward to recieve communion, break off a piece of the bread, dip it in the grape joice** and place it in your mouth.

Schedule

Communion is served in Worship on the first Sunday of each month, on special occasions in worship and upon request to those in the hospital and that are homebound.

** we use grape juice instead of wine for communion in order to not put a stumbling block in front of anyone who might have an issue with Alcholism.
