The Eucharist is the sacrament through which Jesus enters into an intimate, permanent communion with us. It is the sacrament of the table. It is the sacrament of food and drink. It is the sacrament of daily nurture. The Eucharist can be a monthly, weekly, or even daily occurrence. Jesus gave us the Eucharist as a constant memory of his life and death. Not a memory that simply makes us think of him but a memory that makes us members of his body. That is why Jesus on the evening before he died took bread saying, "This is my Body," and took the cup saying, "This is my Blood." By eating the Body and drinking the Blood of Christ, we become one with him.
Each Sunday Holy Communion is served at Huntsville First United Methodist Church. On the first Sunday of each month the Eucharist Service is in one of the 4 main church services. The remaining Sundays’ of the month there is an opportunity to partake in the ritual of Communion in the Chapel from 10:45 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. The elements are blessed and then served by intiction to church members and visitors as they come and go, staying for prayer in the pews or knelling at the altar if they wish.
