    That word does occur only once in the Book of Mormon:

    "See that ye are not baptized unworthily; see that ye partake not of the SACRAMENT of Christ unworthily; but see that ye do all things in worthiness, and do it in the name of Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God; and if ye do this, and endure to the end, ye will in nowise be cast out." (Mormon 9:29).

    The Church of Jesus Christ (WHQ: Monongahela, Pennsylvania) has always used wine for sacrament per Jesus' commandments to use such in the Book of Mormon. We do not serve sacrament to little children, nor do we baptize little children, again per the BOM.

    RE: The Sacrament. Latin sacramentum, which denotes a sum deposited by the two parties to a suit (so named probably from being deposited in a sacred place) binding an agreement, oath of allegiance, or obligation. Though the word never occurs in the Bible. Mormon Encyclopedia?

    Sacramentum is the Latin word translated from the Greek musterion(mystery)found in Eph 1;9; 3:9; Col 1:27; 1 Tim 3:16; Rev 1:20.
