Hearing aid devices are also available from the ushers.

How is communion offered?

We practice open Holy Communion. All who wish to participate are welcome. You will be instructed on how to proceed forward to a communion station. Gluten-free wafers are provided at one of the stations. On first Sundays, we also offer communion at a kneeling station. Each individual will be provided a piece of bread and you will dip it into the cup that holds grape juice and return to your seat. If you choose not to participate, you may remain seated. If you need to remain seated but would like to receive communion, please inform an usher.
