A Wide Welcome

The invitation to the Lord’s Supper is not just for Presbyterians or members of UPC.  All who confess Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord are invited to partake of the Lord’s Supper. We encourage all to participate even if one has doubts about their individual faith, the meal is a reminder to us of God's great love and grace. 

“I am the bread of life.”

—John 6:35 (NRSV)

The Lord’s Supper is the sign and seal of eating and drinking in communion with the crucified and risen Lord. In this act, we remember that during his earthly ministry, Jesus shared meals with his followers and sat at dinner tables as a sign of acceptance of all.


In the last meal before his death, Jesus took and shared with his disciples bread and wine, speaking of these elements as his body and blood, symbols of the new relationship with God brought about by his impending death. On the day of his resurrection, the risen Jesus made himself known to his followers in the breaking of bread.

In the act of remembering that is the Lord’s Supper, we receive and trust the love of Christ present to us and to the world. Through it, we are renewed and empowered to be the church, the body of Christ, in the world.

Communion Schedule & Practice

Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month at our 10:00 AM worship service. We also celebrate communion at our Maundy Thursday service as part of our Holy Week practices.


We most often practice communion through "intinction," which is an ancient practice of dipping a piece of bread into a cup of juice.

We also have individual and gluten free options available. 

UPC practices an open table. You do not need to be presbyterian or a member to participate.
