of this Holy Supper is not to hold out judgment, but rather to hold
out God's forgiveness and pardon. Through this means of grace
we receive the benefits of Christ's death and present intercession;
in fact, through it, we receive nothing less than Christ himself. We
hope that this time is helpful as you consider your relationship with
Jesus Christ, and with his people, the church.

  Wine & Grape Juice in the Lord’s Supper
The Elders have placed wine along with grape juice in the Lord’s
Supper. They have prepared the Table of the Lord so that no
person’s conscience should be troubled with respect to that element
which represents to us the blood of Christ. May your participation
bring life, joy, happiness and strength in Christ as you by faith
receive the blessings visibly shown in the Sacrament.
