Communion Assistant Sign-Up

DETAILS:

Thank you for serving as a communion assistant at Faith Lutheran Church! Serving our
Lord by distributing the sacrament of Holy Communion is a unique opportunity that often
deepens and enhances our own experience of communion. Since the earliest days of
Christianity, followers have gathered around the table to celebrate the Lord’s Supper.
Often there were members designated as the host (this later developed into the role of the
clergy) of the meal and others who assisted in the serving. By serving as a communion
assistant, you are fulfilling a role that harkens back to the earliest days of Christian
community.

The sacrament of Holy Communion is a very special and important part of our worship
service at Faith Lutheran. Each week we gather together to hear God’s word and receive
God’s grace in our Lord’s Supper. You, as a communion assistant, offer the very
presence of Christ and his grace to all those who wish to partake in the Lord’s Supper.
Therefore, it is important that we who serve understand the sacrament. Lutherans
consider something to be a sacrament if it fulfills three criteria: First, it must contain a
promise of God’s love. The promise in the Lord’s Supper is the forgiveness of sins. The
second criterion is that it has a physical element, in this case bread and wine. The third
criterion is that it be commanded by Christ. Jesus says, “This do in remembrance of me”
and so we do. To fully understand the meaning of this sacrament please read the portion
of Luther’s Small Catechism concerning the Lords’ Supper, which follows the guidelines attached here.
