Communion

Celebrating the Lord’s Supper

The Lord’s Supper enacts and seals what the Word proclaims: God’s sustaining grace offered to all people. When we gather at the Lord’s Supper the Spirit draws us into Christ’s presence and unites with the Church in every time and place. We reaffirm the promises of our baptism and recommit ourselves to love and serve God, one another, and our neighbors in the world. The opportunity to eat and drink with Christ is not a right bestowed upon the worthy, but a privilege given to the undeserving who come in faith, repentance, and love. All who come to the table are offered the bread and cup, regardless of their age or understanding.

COVID-19 Note: Church members who would like participate in communion at home during the worship services may from pick up a communion kit from the church Hospitality Center during office hours.

At-Home Communion Serves Members

The Session of First Presbyterian Church provides its local homebound members an opportunity to receive the Lord’s Supper in their home. On four Sundays a year, the Session sends several teams to serve members who are no longer able to come to church because of persistent health problems. The two-member teams visit homebound members that have made prior arrangements to be visited.

If you would like to arrange a visit, please contact Rev. Sandra Randleman at (615) 298-9502 or srandleman@fpcnashville.org.
