Communion ... All Are Welcome
At Saint Stephens we practice an "open table," welcoming all to partake, believing it is Jesus who is the host, and Jesus never turned anyone away. When we celebrate communion, the inner ring of cups is grape juice; the outer is wine. You will be invited forward to receive the elements. Please let an usher know if you find it difficult to come forward--we will then come to you.
At some services, we pass the bread and wine and celebrate communion shared in the pews. While our style of communion may vary, one thing is always the same: All Are Welcome.
