Regarding the Lord’s Supper In the Lord’s Supper Jesus Christ gives us His true body and blood for the forgiveness of all our sins. Matthew 26:26,28 Take and eat; this is my body... This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. All who have examined themselves and who believe what God’s Word and the Lutheran Confessions teach concerning this holy sacrament are invited to commune with us. 1 Corinthians 11:28-29 But let a person examine himself and then eat of the bread and drink from the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without recognizing the Lord’s body brings a judgment on himself. If you would like to know more about the Lord’s Supper, Pastor Werner would be glad to speak with you. If you are not a confirmed Lutheran, you are welcome to come forward for a blessing; simply keep your hands folded when you come to the table. Those members and visitors who will commune are encouraged to read the blue preparatory brochure in the pocket in the front of the hymnal and to read and sign the friendship booklet.
