Details Regarding St. Matthew's Communion Policy

To take communion at St. Matthew, you must believe in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord;  believe that in, with, and under the bread and wine we receive the true body and blood of Christ; confess your sin, seek the assurance of forgiveness, and intend, with God’s help, to amend your sinful life.

Anyone who has not yet been instructed, is in doubt, or holds a confession differing from this belief, and yet desires to receive the sacrament, is asked first to speak with the pastor.  For those simply desiring to receive a blessing from the minister, you may come forward and pass through the line with your arms crossed in front of you.

For the benefit of communicants who have reactions to the unleavened wheat wafers, unleavened rice wafers are also available.  Simply indicate the need for a rice wafer to the pastor as you come up for communion.

For the benefit of communicants who need less alcohol, several individual cups containing white grape juice with a slight tincture of wine is included in the center of each communion tray.  They are easily distinguished from the cups containing red wine.
