Sacrament of the Altar

Every Sunday and most Holy Days during the Church Year we celebrate God’s gift of Holy Communion here at Trinity. In Christ’s church, every pastor is called to be a faithful steward of the mysteries of God (1 Corinthians 4:1-2), admitting no one to the Sacrament who has not first been taught and examined according to the Scriptures (Augsburg Confession, Art. XXIV).

If you are visiting and would like to receive the body and blood of our Lord with us at our altar, please contact Pastor Hering far enough in advance so that he is able to fulfill his vow to know the wool of the sheep who commune from his hand.

If for some reason you are not able to speak with Pastor prior to worshipping with us, you are welcome to receive the sign of the cross in remembrance of your baptismal forgiveness during the distribution of the Sacrament. Barring previous commitments, Pastor will be available to speak with you about our confession of the Christian faith following the Divine Service in order that you may receive the very body and blood of Christ at His table with us here in the future–even before you leave in the case of last minute visitors from sister LC-MS congregations.
