Statement of Closed Communion
Every Lord's Day, Grace celebrates the Sacrament of Holy Communion. The Lord's Supper is celebrated in the confession and glad confidence that, as He says, our Lord gives into our mouths not only bread and wine but His very Body and Blood for the forgiveness of sins and for strengthening our faith in Him and our love for one another. St. Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 11, "Whoever eats the bread and drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner is guilty of profaning the body and blood of the Lord. Let a man so examine himself, and eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For any one who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment upon himself." Out of concern for the spiritual and physical well-being of our visitors and because Holy Communion is also a confession of the Faith which is confessed at this altar, we invite members of this and other congregations of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod to receive who have been examined and absolved by an LCMS ordained minister and therefore admitted to the Table. Visitors desiring communion or who have questions should not commune unless they first speak with the Pastor.
