COMMUNION: All are welcome to receive the Lord’s Body and Blood who are baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and believe that Jesus Christ, crucified and risen, is truly present in, with and under the forms of bread and wine for the forgiveness of sins, life & salvation.
The center section of each Communion tray has two types of glasses. There are glasses with white grape juice, and also glasses with a lesser amount of wine. Please feel free to take which ever will best meet your needs. The communion bread is gluten-free.

SPECIAL EPISODE OF LIFETREE CAFÉ SUNDAY, JULY 26TH AT 11:30 AM: “When He Becomes She”, the filmed story of a man who is changing gender will be presented at Lifetree Café. The exclusive film follows a man named Bob, who says he knew at the age of 4 that he was really a girl in a boy’s body. The film examines issues surrounding transgenderism such as family dynamics, workplace complications, and spiritual implications. Lifetree Café spokesperson Craig Cable said, “This issue-transgenderism-raises all sorts of questions for people. Increasingly, our schools, workplaces, and faith communities are looking for answers. This Lifetree program provides some insight.”
