Jesus Church offer Communion on the first Sunday of every month at their 10am service...

The 'bread' we serve is gluton free and the 'wine' we serve is
non alchoholic.

This once a month service only lasts an hour so that the rest of the hour can be spent in sharing a meal with each other and encouraging each other in our daily Christian walk. (Please bring something to share.)

So... What is Communion?

Communion (The bread to eat and the fruit of the vine to drink) is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ. (2 Peter 1:4)

Communion is taken in memorial of Jesus suffering and death (1 Corinthians 11:26) and is an acknowledgment of the prophecy of His second coming (1 Corinthians 11:26) It is something commanded that all believers participate in, "till He come!"

Some Christian traditions refer to Communion as the "Eucharist," however, the wording used is much less important than the recognition that "the Lord’s supper" (1 Corinthians 11:20) takes place at "the Lord’s table" (1 Corinthians 10:21).

The Lord’s table recognizes the historical reality of Jesus’ sacrifice. Of the bread, Jesus said, "This is My body which is broken for you." Of the cup, He said, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood" (1 Corinthians 11:24,25, NKJV). Rather than being a hollow ritual about Christ, the Lord’s Supper commemorates what He has actually done for our forgiveness and reconciliation with the Father.

At the Lord’s table, the entire community focuses on the Cross and the empty tomb. In this act, the history of redemption is affirmed by the congregation, and the congregation is affirmed by the Agent of that history. As Jesus said, "Do this in remembrance of Me" (1 Corinthians 11:24,25).

One purpose of the Communion experience is to call participants to a moment of accountability before the Lord. Paul addressed the church at Corinth on this issue. The congregation was fractured by competing loyalties and was displaying grotesque moral and relational failures... Even the regular fellowship meals, and the following Communion services, were coming to resemble the feasts held in local pagan temples (1 Corinthians 11:18-22).

The Corinthians needed to "examine" themselves: "For anyone who eats and drinks without recognizing the body of the Lord eats and drinks judgment on himself" (1 Corinthians 11:29). This injunction means that the blessing of Communion is not only neutralized, but reversed, when the Lord’s table (and the sacrifice and community it represents) is treated with disrespect.

There is no benefit in the bread and cup for Christians who choose to live in flagrant disobedience before coming to the table.

Coming to the Lord’s table is a way of recognizing that the future will not be an endless extension of the present. Christ is coming for His church. The bread and the cup foreshadow the real Last Supper, the one that will never end.

Ordinances are visible representations of invisible realities. We come to the Lord’s table to remember the present reality of the Cross, to make our lives accountable to God, and to look forward to Christ’s return. As we participate in the ordinances, we connect both to God and to His people.
