We celebrate communion as a reminder of how grateful we are that Jesus sacrificed himself and paid the ultimate price for our sins. The elements of bread and juice are symbols of Christ's broken body and shed blood. By partaking of this sacrament, we are saying, I believe in You and I receive and walk in Your grace. This act of obedience symbolizes a new covenant. Communion is not a means of salvation. Rather, it is a testament of a believe's faith in the atoning work of the cross.
We celebrate communion following each of our morning services:
10:40 in the Life Center
12:10 in the Auditorium
(please pick up your children prior to attending 12:10 communion)
"Then after he had given thanks, he broke it and said,
'This is my body, which is given for you. Eat this and remember me.'
After the meal, Jesus took a cup of wine in his hands and said, 'This is my blood, and with it God makes his new agreement with you.
Drink this and remember me'."
1 Cor. 11:24-25
