The Lord's Supper
Sunday, December 20, 2020
This sacred ordinance was given to believers ONLY by Jesus to remember His sacrifice and to symbolize the new covenant. Believers are those who have chosen for themselves to believe in their hearts and confess with their mouth – a public profession that includes baptism by immersion – Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
The elements of bread and juice are symbols of Christ’s broken body and shed blood. The Lord's Supper is not a way to salvation or required for salvation. Rather, it is a testament of a believer’s faith. It is a time of self-examination to confess sin and recommit oneself to following Christ.
If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, you are invited to take the Lord's Supper. If you do not consider Christ to be your Savior, you are welcome to join us, but ask that you NOT observe the Lord's Supper as the Scripture teaches.
We will have added safety protocols in place for the health of our members when taking communion. If you feel ill, have a fever or cough, or have been in contact with someone who has had the virus, you should not attend service, but instead, consider participating with us from home, online.
Please gather the following to participate in the Lord's Supper with us online:
Use Water or Juice
Use Bread or Crackers
Prepare the Elements in Advance. Before the gathering begins, pour water/juice into small cups and break the bread/crackers into pieces for each person.
Whether onsite or online, Pastor David will guide us through the Lord's Supper during our gathering. He will instruct us when to drink and when to eat. You simply need to have the elements ready!
