The Lord's Supper (Holy Communion, Eucharist)
- The Lord's Supper is a holy meal of bread and wine (in The United Methdoist Church, we use unfermented grape juice) that symbolizes the body and blood of Christ.
- The Lord's Supper recalls the life, death and resurrection of Jesus and celebrates the unity of all the members of God's family.
- By sharing this meal, we give thanks for Christ's sacrifice and are nourished and empowered to go into the world in mission and ministry.
- We practice "open communion," welcoming all who love Christ, repent of their sin, and seek to live in peace with one another.
