Bryan Clements - Communion Service
We will end our service today with the Lord’s Supper. We believe that we are a part of the body of Christ. As we come to the table to celebrate the Lord’s Supper all believers are invited. If you have accepted Jesus as your Savior and you are able to say, “I know that My Redeemer Lives” then we invite you share in communion with us. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper in Remembrance of what Jesus has done for us and in patient hope for His return.
The Apostle Paul teaches us that we should examine ourselves before we come to the table. We are to be certain that we are in a right relationship with God and with others around us. Take a moment and seek God’s forgiveness for where you have missed the mark.
Father, We confess that we have sinned against you
in our thoughts, words, and deeds.
We have had anxieties about the future,
even though we proclaim you as Lord.
We have failed to love our neighbors,
and we have disobeyed your commands.
Have mercy upon us, Lord Jesus,
Forgive us our sins
and cleanse us of all unrighteousness
That we may walk in your ways
and serve you in grace and love.
This we ask in your holy Name
John Prayer – pray for communion
Distribute The Bread
Jesus, on the same night in which 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.”
Distribute The Cup
25In the same way Jesus took the cup also after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” 26For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.
