WHAT IS COMMUNION?

Throughout his ministry Jesus ate with friends, outcasts, and sinners. In his teachings he used the table as an image of inclusivity, hospitality, and God’s in-breaking reign. At his last supper with his followers he initiated the mystery of what we have come to call a sacrament—a sign of God’s grace. This ritual meal is a Christian development of Jewish Passover traditions and mealtime worship.

At St. Andrew's we value the way that communion brings all people together to connect with the sacred. Each of us come with slightly different needs and understandings, and we each leave having been impacted in our own ways.

Most frequently communion is brought around and served to people in the pews via single-serving cups and pre-cut bread.
