All Christians may take communion at Bethel United Methodist Church even if they are not yet members of the church. Communion is a sacrament instituted by Jesus Christ as a way to remember His life, death, and resurrection. As we participate in communion, we encounter the living Christ.
Communion is served weekly in our Contemporary Service at 10:30am. Servers stand by the Communion Table with plates of bread, and chalices of grape juice. Worshipers walk to the front, take a tiny piece of bread, and dip it into the chalice of grape juice, and then return to their seats.
In our 8am Blended Worship Service communion is served on the first Sunday of the month. Trays of bread are passed by the servers through the pews to the congregation and worshipers eat the bread when instructed by the pastor. Servers then return to the communion table and carry trays of tiny communion cups into the congregation. When instructed by the pastor, each participating worshiper drinks the communion juice.
Pastors also provide communion to shut-ins unable to attend regular services.
Children are welcome to participate in communion at the discretion of the parents or guardians.
