Can I receive communion?
You do not need to be a member of First to share the Sacrament with us. All who believe that Christ is truly present in the bread and wine are welcome. We believe it is our Lord’s invitation to which we respond, our Lord’s meal at which we gather, our Lord’s gifts which we receive. Children not yet communing may come forward for a goldfish and a blessing. All those who are communing are asked to extend both hands to receive.
You will be given a piece of bread that you then dip into the chalice of wine. Out of concern for those who cannot drink wine, we also offer white grape juice, which is in the other section of the chalice. Gluten-free wafers are also available -- please ask if you need one. If you would like to receive communion but are not able to come forward, please let an usher know so that communion can be brought to you at your seat.
