Communion

"I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty."
John 6:35

Rosemount UMC practices open communion, which means that the bread and wine (grape juice) will be served to anyone who is seeking God's grace, forgiveness and new life. You do not have to be a member of the church in order to participate.

Typically, communion is served by "intinction." That is, you will take a piece of bread and dip it into a chalice of juice, turn the bread over so it catches any drips and eat it immediately. There are usually several stations of two servers each. One of the stations has glasses of juice so communion may be taken in the traditional way, if you prefer.

Grape juice is used instead of wine so that ALL may participate. We do not want to exclude children, pregnant women, those who may be dealing with a substance abuse issue, or any others for whom wine might present a problem.

Communion is offered during the first week of each month.
