The quiet ministry of preparing for monthly communion services – the first Sunday of the month.
Communion, often called “The Lord’s Supper,” is a memorial in which Christians identify with the crucifixion of Jesus Christ (see 1 Corinthians 10:16; 11:20). It’s a time for believers to remember the Lord’s broken body and His shed blood for all people (see Luke 22:19–20). Jesus Christ instituted Communion on the eve of His death when He ate the Passover meal with His disciples. Bread and wine were once served for the Lord’s Supper.
Today, many churches, including ours, use crackers and grape juice. The bread symbolizes Christ’s body, which was beaten and broken for us as He died for the sins of humanity. The cup of wine symbolizes His blood, which was shed for us as He paid for our sins (see John 10:17–18; Ephesians 1:7; Romans 5:8–9).
This ministry helps facilitate this time of communion by serving the church through the preparation and clean up of the communion elements. If you would like to help, please contact Deacon Gary Hurley.
