Please talk to our pastor if you would like to receive the Lord's Supper during the service.
The pastor will say yes:
- If you are baptized, and
- If you agree that the bread is also Christ's body for you to eat, and
- If you agree that the wine is also Christ's blood for you to drink, and
- If you are a member of a Lutheran Church Missouri Synod congregation, and
- If you have not been asked by your home pastor to refrain from the Lord's Supper for any reason.
Otherwise the pastor will ask you to wait and yet come forward to the altar rail with the people in your pew and receive a blessing from the Lord by the pastor. The pastor will place his hand on your head and say, "The Lord bless you by keeping you in Christ's baptism".
