can participate in this experience from your home. Communion (the Lord’s
Supper) is an ordinance given to all believers by Jesus to remember his
sacrifice for us and to symbolize the new covenant.
The elements of bread and wine/juice are symbols of Christ’s broken body and shed blood. Communion is not a means of salvation, rather, it is a testament of a believer’s faith in the atoning work of the cross. If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, join us online to remember his GREAT sacrifice.
If you are not in the place where you consider Christ your Savior then sit back and enjoy the service like normal.
HOW TO TAKE COMMUNION ONLINE
1. Purchase Grape Juice (quantity depends on size of your group)
Bread or Baked Crackers
- Unleavened bread is the best expression of the "bread" element. Unleavened bread simply is bread baked without a rising agent (most large grocery stores stock unleavened bread), but you can select any bread or cracker of your choice.
Ready at Home with Your Elements
- The teaching pastor will direct you through properly receiving communion. All you need to do is follow along online individually or as a group.
- After receiving communion online, please fill out a Connect or email firstname.lastname@example.org letting us know how many in your home participated in receiving communion. Snap a quick photo and include it in your email as well.
