The Lord’s Supper – (Breaking of Bread)
Sundays 9:30AM – 11AM
We celebrate the Lord’s Supper on the first day of the week.
(Acts 20:7) (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
We have no paid pastor or minister, so public participation in these services is the responsibility of the men in the congregation.
(1 Corinthians 14:26-33) (1 Timothy 2:8)
Functioning with their heads uncovered (1 Corinthians 11:4)
The women participate in silence
(1 Corinthians 14:34,35) (1 Timothy 2:11,12)
Functioning with their heads covered (1 Corinthians 11:5,6-13)
We have a group of men called elders (also known as bishops, overseers, and shepherds) who have been recognized by the congregation through the criteria taught in
1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9
These men are developed by the Holy Spirit Acts 20:28
Their responsibility is to lead, guide, and care for the members of the congregation by example, teaching, and exhortation as well as shepherd care.
The Breaking of Bread meeting is the central point of our gatherings.
We are told through the Bible to do this to remember
our Lord Jesus Christ until He comes.
The meeting consists of partaking the bread
(which signifies His body that was freely given)
and the wine
(which signifies His blood that was shed on the cross)
Each emblem is passed around and taken by members of the congregation. Each celebration of the Lord’s Supper includes singing, praise, and thanksgiving on Christ’s life, death, and resurrection, remembering and reflecting on the Lord Jesus Christ of His willing sacrifice on the cross.
The meeting is then concluded with a short message,
followed by brief announcements and a prayer.
