CHURCHWIDE

GATHER 07/21/24, Live the Creed! The Power of Polite Words, "Speak Well of Others." Ephesians 4:29-31  
Communion Service: In the Lord’s Supper, baptized believers in Jesus Christ celebrate and remember his sacrifice. By this sacrifice, Jesus saves sinners, paying the penalty for the sins of all who trust in him, establishing peace with God. In this ordinance, we also celebrate the communion we have with one another as followers of Christ. Therefore, all baptized believers who are in fellowship with their local church (including our guests this morning) are welcome to receive the Lord’s Supper. Parents of children who have yet to receive believers’ baptism will find this to be a valuable opportunity to teach their children the gospel. In short, everyone can participate in the Lord’s Supper, either by receiving it as a baptized believer in Christ, or by observing others receive it and contemplating its meaning.
