The Lord's Supper
A focus of our worship service each week is the celebration of the Lord’s Supper, which is sometimes called communion.
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 (cf. 1 Corinthians 11:23-26). The early church did this at every official meeting of the church (cf. Acts 2:42, 20:7; 1 Corinthians 11:17-34).
The Lord’s Supper is an act of worship in which, as we re-enact Christ’s sacrificial death on the cross by partaking of the bread and the cup, God Himself works in us so that we remember and give thanks for the salvation He provides. It serves as a symbol of our union to Christ and one another, and through it we proclaim His death as we anticipate His return.
For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the death of the Lord until He comes (1 Corinthians 11:26).
We invite you to follow this command not as an empty tradition, but with joy, thanksgiving, and a desire to keep your central focus on Christ's saving work on the cross with its profound meaning in your life.
