Communion is served on the first Sunday of the month, with additional opportunities offered at special times of the year. The congregation is invited to come forward to the communion railing and is administered the sacrament via intinction. Each person is given a piece of bread and then offered the cup* to dip the bread in and eat.
In the United Methodist Church, the communion table is “open to all Christians who wish to know the presence of Christ and share in the community of God’s people.” You need not be a member of our church or of any church to partake. We simply ask that you come seeking the new life and forgiveness that is being offered in the sacrament. Home or hospital communion is available upon request of one of our pastors.
At Kingston United Methodist Church, parents are encouraged to decide whether their children are able to receive communion. There is no age limitation on receiving of the sacrament in our church, but we recognize that every family needs to make that decision on their own.
If you would like more information about communion at Kingston United Methodist Church, please contact the church office and ask to speak with the minister.
(*Please note that in the United Methodist Church grape juice is used in place of wine so as to honor our brothers and sisters who might be struggling with alcohol addiction.)
