During every Sunday gathering, we observe a memorial of Jesus’ death and resurrection, commonly referred to as the Lord’s Supper or Communion. Someone usually first shares a meditation with us, words designed to help us focus on Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross. Then, following prayer, we eat a small piece of bread that symbolizes Jesus’ body that was sacrificed on the Cross. Next, we drink a small cup of “wine” (grape juice) that symbolizes the blood of Jesus that was poured out for us.
As we take these emblems, we are reminded of God’s love for us. He sent Jesus to be sacrificed for our sins so that we can live with Him forever! We are also reminded through the Lord’s Supper that we are called to live in community to provide support and encouragement for one another. In essence, we are a family, created by the Cross of Jesus Christ and our faith in His ability to save us. That is also why we often sing together during both the Bread and the Cup—it reminds us to always focus on our shared life together in Christ. You are invited to join us as we eat the Bread and drink the Cup.
