Hours before his crucifixion, the Lord Jesus Christ commanded his disciples to remember and proclaim his death through the symbols of the bread and cup. We are to do this regularly until he comes (1 Cor 11:23-26). The early church did this at every official meeting of the church (Acts 2:42, 20:7; 1 Cor 11:17-34).
At Broadview, we seek to follow this command not as empty tradition, but with joy, thanksgiving, and a desire to keep our central focus on Christ’s saving work on the cross and its profound meaning in our lives. We seek to be a Christ-centered church.
On each Lord's day, as we gather for worship, the cup and bread are packaged together and made available at the tables in the back corners of the Worship Center. We encourage you to take the elements and partake of them as the Spirit leads you during the worship service. Our pastors will, on occasion, lead the entire congregation to partake of the Lord's Supper together.
Whether we partake of the Lord's Supper simultaneously or at any point during worship, we recognize the body and blood of Christ that was given for us, and we remember that in Christ, we are one.
