The Lord’s Supper
In-Person & Online (contact us for zoom info)
The Lord’s Supper is the central point of our gatherings.
We are told through the Bible, that we are to do this to remember our Lord Jesus Christ, until He comes.
This meeting consists of partaking of the bread (which signifies His broken body) and the wine (which signifies His blood that He shed)
We have no paid pastor or minister, so public participation in these services is the responsibility of the men in the assembly.
(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 assembly, 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 assembly by example, teaching, and exhortation, as well as shepherd care.
Each celebration of the Lord’s Supper includes praising and thanksgiving on Christ’s life, death and resurrection remembering and reflecting
on the Lord Jesus Christ, of His willing sacrifice on the cross.
What to expect:
The meeting consists of members of the assembly remembering Christ’s life which He freely gave over 2000 years ago, in which He instituted a feast shared with His disciples by partaking bread (which signifies The Lord Jesus Christ’s body that was willingly given and sacrificed for all)
After the bread has been broken, thanks is given for the wine. It is then poured, and given to members of the assembly, in which it symbolizes
The Lord Jesus Christ’s blood that was shed on the cross. Each emblem is passed around and taken by members in the assembly.
For this meeting, we sit facing the emblems; the bread and the cup.
The focus here is not on any one member, but on our collective enjoyment and remembrance of Christ.
We share the bread & wine around the circle as we enjoy our common blessings in the Lord.
We also have seating areas for those who are not currently members of the assembly, but who wish to observe.
Hymns & Prayers:
Throughout the meeting, various men who are members in the assembly will lead in worship and prayer, as they meditate,
remembering and reflecting on The Lord Jesus Christ of His willing sacrifice on the cross.
After we take the bread and wine, you will notice a collection is taken. Those who are members of the assembly contribute on a voluntary, weekly basis.
No collection will ever be taken from any visitors or community at any of our meetings.
The meeting is then concluded with a short message given from different men in the assembly each week, followed by brief announcements and a prayer.
We invite you to watch the meeting unfold and would be happy to meet with you to discuss what you’ve seen and heard.
Visitors are welcome to come observe this meeting.
