“Bread of Life”
1 Corinthians 11:23-26; John 6:35

Because we cannot gather at one table, we encourage you to partake of the Sacrament of Communion wherever you are as you watch the worship video. These steps will help you to prepare:

First: Take bread.
Dinner rolls, tortillas, crackers are all fine. Have enough for everyone to receive a healthy morsel.

Next: Prepare a cup.
Wine, grape juice, water… whatever you prefer. Maybe milk for the little ones.

Then: Set the table.
Dim the lights or light a candle, then take a seat.

Finally: Open your heart.
Forgive anyone with whom you have a quarrel. The Good Book instructs us to come to the table with reconciled hearts.

For I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way he 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.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. 1 Corinthians 11:23-26

Jesus said to them, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.’ John 6:35

Our Good Friday worship videos will be posted by 12 pm tomorrow. Our Easter service will be ready just before sunrise on Sunday morning.
