We believe that the Lord’s Supper is an ordinance of the Lord in which gathered believers eat bread, signifying Christ’s body given for His people, and drink the cup of the Lord, signifying the New Covenant in Christ’s blood. We do this to remember and proclaim the Lord’s death in our place (1 Corinthians 11:23-28) and also to look forward to our future supper with the Lord Himself. (Revelation 19:7-9)
- We usually have communion the first Sunday of each month, after the sermon, as part of our worship service.
- A chosen passage about the Lord’s Supper is read, briefly describing its significance, and a warning is issued about partaking in an unworthy manner.
- The elements are passed and held until everyone has been served so that we can eat and drink together.
- We practice “open communion.” If you profess faith in Jesus Christ and adhere to the warnings, then you may take the elements. Unbelievers should refrain from participating and simply pass the serving tray along.
