Holy Supper

Every two months we celebrate the Lord’s supper. On the night he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took bread and wine, gave it to his disciples to eat, and said, “This is my body; this is my blood. Eat and drink in remembrance of me.”

Ever since the church has been sharing bread and wine in a communal meal. The bread represents the body of Christ and the wine represents his blood. He gave up his body and blood for us as a sacrifice to purge away our sins and to give us eternal life. As food and drink sustain our earthly life, so the body and blood of Christ strengthen our spiritual life.

It is a joyous thing for the congregation to experience this communal meal. By it we know we have communion with our Lord Jesus Christ who is in heaven; by it we celebrate the communion we have with one another as fellow members of the body of Christ.
