Communion - In Honor of Chirst

After spending the last couple of months with our Adults on Wednesday evenings (with the DEVOTE 7 week series and now the LIFE VERSE 7 week series) I have felt a great sense of, once again, leading a communion service rather than preaching towards communion.  I have observed from many of those on Wednesday evening that we all have real struggles and each, in our own way are devoted to Christ and have a particular verse or scripture that holds significant importance to the individual. I have witnessed our members read from various Bible translations with many different approaches while at the same time driven by the same focus - "To Honor Christ.”

As we approach our time of communion the same also applies, we are devoted to Christ and are driven by the same focus - “To Honor Christ.”  This morning we will do just that, while hearing the reading of Scripture and with the agreement in song, our entire time of Worship will focus on the sacrifice, grace and love that is and should be known as communion with the goal - “To Honor Christ."

While our time at the table will not be different, our focus will be on the events leading up to and following the meal as it is recorded in Scripture.
