This Sunday (6/29) I plan to help us delve into some practical issues related to the Lord's Supper based on I Corinthians 11. One of the things we'll be discussing is the frequency with which we celebrate holy communion as a church family. Over the past months we as elders have wrestled with the combined testimony of Scripture, biblical theology and church history and have concluded that Jesus' original design for the Lord's Supper was to see it as one of the primary elements of Christian worship. In other words, whenever we gather to hear the Bible preached, to sing and to pray as a church it also makes sense to gather around the table to remember Christ's death and second coming. Consequently, beginning in September we're considering beginning the practice of every week communion.
We'd like to know what you think. Please click on the word "comments" below to post a reply and join the conversation.
