Communion

At Immanuel we celebrate the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper every Lord's Day. In this Sacrament we joyfully receive Christ’s Body and Blood, under bread and wine, for the forgiveness of our sins.

As we celebrate the Sacrament we also give public confession to our unity in the Christian Faith (1 Cor. 10). Members in good standing of congregations of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod are asked to announce themselves to the Pastor prior to the service before communing. All others are invited to speak with the Pastor about preparing for communion fellowship with the Evangelical Lutheran Church. Those not communing are invited to come forward for a blessing, kneeling with arms crossed.
