Communion

We celebrate the Sacrament of Communion-the Lord’s Supper-in worship on the 1st Sunday of each month. In the Sacrament of Communion, we remember Christ’s death until He comes again. (1 Corinthians 11:26)
 
Communion is open to all who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, regardless of denominational affiliation or background. According to Scripture, we believe that the elements of Communion are symbolic; the bread represents Jesus’ body, broken for the sins of the world; the cup represents God’s new covenant with His people in Jesus’ blood, shed for the sins of the world. (Matt 26:26-30, Mark 14:22-25, 1 Corinthians 11:23-25)
The Sacrament of Communion is a joyful feast in which we embrace the hope of eternal life through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, which God offers freely to all who believe.
