Join us as we learn more about the sacrament of communion and the meal that is given for each and everyone one of us. If this is your first-time taking communion or the five hundredth, you are welcome to be part of this conversation. We will have stole kits available for those who would like to celebrate their first communion at an upcoming communion service. Westwood practices open communion, encouraging parents to choose the right time for their child. This conversation is helpful in making that choice, understanding why you already made that choice, and helping your child to understand why we get to “taste and see that the Lord is good” in this holy meal. RSVP here or below for lunch and stole counts.
Both services contain an identical sermon and scripture readings. Holy Communion is celebrated on the 1st & 3rd Sunday of each month.
