Communion This Sunday, March 8

Communion, also called the Lord’s Supper and the Eucharist, is a unique opportunity to remember the life, death, resurrection and future return of Jesus. Those who partake are reaffirming their faith in a public way, saying, “Jesus is my sin-bearer and righteousness-provider. Since Jesus has proven his commitment to me as my Savior, I re-commit myself to following him as my Lord.” Children who have not yet made a profession of faith before the ordained leadership of a local church are encouraged to join their parents at the table, but to refrain from taking the elements until they are joyfully admitted by the elders upon their profession of faith in the substitutionary work of Jesus, which is a day of intentional preparation, but also of joyful anticipation!
