Following ancient tradition and the pattern set for us by Jesus, we celebrate the The Lord’s Supper every first day of the week in true communion with one another and our host, Jesus. As we remember the Lord’s death and the sacrifice that was made on the altar of the cross, we celebrate the resurrection at the table and join in the feast that points to the ultimate feast at Jesus’ return.
Again following Scripture and the early church, we begin our time together with the bread and end our meal with the cup. We conclude by singing the traditional hymn commonly known as the “Doxology” to praise the Trinity and stand united with generations before us who have done the same.
“For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, ‘This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.’ In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this as often as you drink it in remembrance of me.’ For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.”
(1 Corinthians 11:23–26, ESV)
