Reception of Holy Communion at Concordia-Chicago

We celebrate in the Lord’s Supper the true presence of Jesus Christ in, with and under the bread and wine. In this sacrament our sins are forgiven and we are given life, salvation and peace. If you are not a member of a congregation of the Lutheran Church Missouri-Synod and wish to commune, please take a moment to speak to Campus Pastor Jeff Leininger before the Sunday morning worship service. He can be reached before the reunion at or 708-209-3470. All who wish are welcome to come forward to receive a blessing.
