Let every one of you who has either any desire to please God, or any love of your own soul, obey God and consult the good of your own soul, by sharing in holy communion every time you can, as did the first Christians. ~ John Wesley
What is Holy Communion?
- A Memory Meal. By eating bread and wine (juice), we remember how Jesus’ body was broken and His blood was shed on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins.
- An Obedient Act. Jesus commanded us to do it.
- A Powerful Presence. Though Christians disagree concerning the nature of the bread and wine (juice), all agree that Jesus is powerfully present when we come to the table in faith!
- A Great Thanksgiving. Holy Communion is an opportunity to thank the Lord Jesus for all He has done for us.
All believers are welcome to share Holy Communion at Morton United Methodist Church!
