Holy Communion

communion02 copyHoly Communion is one of the two sacraments of the United Methodist Church. This sacrament is often called by other names, including the Lord's Supper, the Last Supper, and Eucharist. The United Methodist Church recognizes only Baptism and Holy Communion as sacraments because they were the only acts ordained by Christ.

In Holy Communion, we celebrate what God is doing among us and in us. We remember and proclaim God's saving work through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We are reminded again of the gifts of God's grace and forgiveness given to each of us. In the United Methodist Church, Holy Communion is open to all persons, including children. You do not have to be a member to participate.


At Church of the Palms, we observe the Sacrament of Holy Communion on the first and third Sunday of every month during worship.

Alternative Bread

Gluten, wheat, and corn free communion wafers are always available for those whom have sensitivities to allergens (such as our Pastor Pete!) Simply indicate your need for alternative bread when you come forward. Ask any usher or the pastor if you have any questions.
