Communion

Communion is served every Sunday at NPUMC

During  the 10:45am worship service.

Our table is open to everyone.

 We invite you with these words:

Christ invites to his Table all who repent and come to receive

Every color of the earth, every corner of the globe

Old or young, You Are Welcome

 Able to come on your own two feet, needing the help of canes, crutches

prosthetics, the strong arm of a neighbor, or needing the elements

brought to you,  You Are Welcome

Whatever your sexual orientation, however you are dressed, you are welcome

If you feel you are worthy You Are Welcome

If you feel you are unworthy, Christ Jesus welcomes you to His table

 

And to ensure that everyone can share together in this meal,  only grape juice

and gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free communion bread is served.

Here is the recipe we use if you have other food concerns you need to consider.

We receive by intinction, which means that when you come to receive you will be
handed a piece of bread with the words “the body of Christ, broken for you.” You
are then invited to take that piece of bread and dip it in the chalice (cup) as
the server says “the blood of Christ, shed for you.”
