If you visit on a Sunday, the “Lord’s Supper” or “Communion” will be included in the worship service. We observe this memorial every Sunday.
Again, the reason for this is our desire to follow the New Testament teaching. The Bible teaches us that the early church celebrated this observance on the first day of the week.1
We know from both scripture and respected historians that, from the beginning of the church, the Lord’s Supper was observed every Sunday.2
During this memorial, plates containing pieces of unbeaten bread will be passed throughout the congregation. This bread symbolizes the body of Jesus.3 Each person will take or break off a piece of bread and eat it as it is passed.
Next, trays filled with small cups will be passed. The cups contain “fruit of the vine” – grape juice, symbolizing the blood of Jesus.3 Each participant will drink the contents of one of the cups.
This memorial is open to all Christians. This is our Lord’s table. We neither invite nor deny. If you choose not to participate, don’t be embarrassed. Feel free to just pass the plate or tray to the person next to you.
