Lord's Supper.

The 1st part of a service of Holy Communion, or Eucharist, in Luth. chs. usually follows fairly closely the orders of service (Morning, Matins, or Vespers); main points of variation occur in the form of the Confession of Sins, Absolution, Creed, and music for the Offertory. The 2d part, or Communion Service proper, begins with Salutation and Prefatory Sentences. See also Worship, Parts of.

For other aspects of the Lord's Supper see Altar Bread; Covenant, 7; Eucharistic Controversies; Grace, Means of, I, IV.
