There are two basic parts to Sunday worship of Holy Eucharist. First, there are Bible readings. Usually there is reading from Hebrew scriptures, then a Psalm, then a reading from the New Testament. Finally, there is a reading from the Gospel about Jesus. We use the Revised Common Lectionary. A sermon and prayers follow.
The second part of this worship is the Holy Eucharist, where we remember the words of Jesus at the Last Supper, to share bread and wine in his name. All who desire to be strengthened by the Presence of Jesus Christ in the sacrament of bread and wine are welcome to receive communion. Everyone is welcome, including children.
You may stand or kneel at the altar rail to receive the Sacraments. After the communion, we are sent out to serve God in the world!
