Sunday, January 3, 9am & 10:45am, Sanctuary
Communion elements will be administered using a prepackaged, sealed bread, and juice cup. Individually wrapped gluten-free options will continue to be made available.
9am & 10:45am Live Stream Services, At-Home Participation
If you are unable to participate in our in-person indoor gatherings at 9am or 10:45am, we invite you to participate in this experience from your home.
Communion (the Lord’s Supper) is an ordinance given to all believers by Jesus to remember His sacrifice for us and to symbolize the new covenant. Communion will be part of our Sunday service at 9am and 10:45am.
The elements of bread and wine/juice are symbols of Christ’s broken body and shed blood. Communion is not a means of salvation, rather, it is a testament of a believer’s faith in the atoning work of the cross. If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, join us online to remember His GREAT sacrifice. If you are not in the place where you consider Christ your Savior then sit back and enjoy the service like normal.
ITEMS NEEDED FOR TAKING COMMUNION AT HOME
1. Grape Juice or Water (quantity depends on size of your group)
2. Bread or Baked Crackers | Unleavened bread is the best expression of the “bread” element. Unleavened bread simply is bread baked without a rising agent (most large grocery stores stock unleavened bread), but you can select any bread or cracker of your choice.
3. Be Ready at Home with Your Elements | The pastor will direct you through properly receiving communion. All you need to do is follow along online individually or as a group during the service.
