Communion

At Faith Church, we celebrate the Lord’s Supper every week. You might hear it referred to as the Lord’s Table, Holy Communion, or Eucharist. In Acts 2:42 we read that the first generation church, “devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” We believe they were on to something.

Of course in our celebration of the Lord’s Supper we remember Jesus’ last supper with his disciples. It was the night of his betrayal and subsequent crucifixion, so naturally the mood was somber. But Jesus shared many other meals with all sorts of people: spiritual seekers, notorious sinners, religious leaders, wedding partiers, and with his disciples after his resurrection.

When we celebrate the Lord’s Supper at Faith Church, we have all these meals in mind. So our celebration of the Lord’s Supper is sometimes somber, sometimes celebratory, sometimes reflective, sometimes anticipatory, and always special. Because we do it every week, we can adapt it to the message of the day.

You might wonder, “Should I participate in the Lord’s Supper?” We recognize with the wider church that baptism normally precedes the Lord’s Supper, and we will encourage you to be baptized if you have not already been. But we also believe God’s grace knows no boundaries, especially the ones zealously guarded by so many churches. So whether you’re a spiritual seeker, notorious sinner, religious leader, or convinced disciple of Christ, you are welcome at our table at Faith. For it is the Lord’s Table, and if you’re drawn to this Table, you’re drawn to its Lord.
