HOLY COMMUNION AT REDEEMER
The Lord's Supper, or Holy Communion, is the means by which we eat and drink bread and wine, and in so doing, we receive Christ's Body given for us and Christ's Blood shed for us for the forgiveness of our sins. We believe Jesus' true Body and Blood are really present in, with, and under the bread and wine, just as Jesus said (Matthew 26:26-28; Mark 14:22-24; Luke 22:19-20; 1 Corinthians 10:16; 11:23-26).
The Lord's Supper connects us directly to the life-giving Body and Blood of Jesus, and the saving work of Jesus on the cross. Because of the precious and powerful nature of this gift of God, we ask that those who have not received instruction in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod to please speak to the pastor before receiving the Lord's Supper
