Holy Communion and Baptism are the two Sacraments of the United Methodist Church.
The Sacrament of Holy Communion invites us to focus on the self-giving nature of God—making the shared meal an occasion of grace—and on the holiness of our communion with God and one another.
Our founder, John Wesley, encouraged the people called Methodist to receive Holy Communion “as often as possible.” At St. Luke’s UMC, all are welcome at The Lord’s Table, including children. The elements are bread and grape juice.
The Sacrament is celebrated on Sundays at the following times:
- 8:30 a.m. Traditional Worship Service (Both Campuses), Sanctuary
- 8:45 a.m. Encounter Worship, Fellowship Hall (first Sunday of every month)
- 12:15 p.m. Holy Communion, Chapel
Holy Communion is also celebrated within the entire community on the first Sunday in October, which is World Communion Sunday, at selected Christmas Eve services, and on the first Sunday in Lent.
