Observing our Sacraments


The Sacraments


Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ celebrates two sacraments -- sacred events established by Christ:

 Baptisms 
       Perfomed as a welcome into the household of faith, they signify our belonging. Baptism is appropriate for any age, though baptism of infants and young children is most common. 

       The United Church of Christ honors baptisms from any other Christian tradition.

 Communion (The Lord's Supper) is the central meal of fellowship and remembrance for the Church. We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of each month and additionally at special services.

Feel free to participate to the extent you're comfortable. Join in the hymns, prayers, and fellowship, or just quietly seek the Spirit, as God invites you to come and worship. Whoever you are and wherever you are on life's journey, you are welcome here. If you are interested in joining our church, ask our pastors when the next Inquirers Meeting is. We look forward to growing with you in faith.

We celebrate communion (also called Eucharist or Lord's Supper) on the first Sunday of each month. We specifically invite "all who seek new life in Christ" to join us in sharing the bread and cup. Our Deacons serve worshipers in the pews. We also offer rice cakes and water as an alternative, remembering that this sacred time centers on God's grace and our acceptance, much more than on which elements we receive
