Real Life Church Communion Service
Palm Sunday April 29th 6:30pm - 8:00pm
What is a communion service ?
Many people may not know what a Real Life Church Communion service looks like. I would like to take a moment to explain what we do and why.
In John 13 Jesus taught his disciples by example to serve others. He got up from the table and washed His disciples feet. In verse 17 He said "now that you know these things you will be blessed if you do them." Jesus set the example for us. He used this to teach his people to humble themselves. At our communion service we will sit around a table and have a small meal, some cold cuts, and fruit. This meal is symbolic of the last supper that Jesus spent with his disciples. We will eat a piece bread like Jesus gave His disciples to eat symbolizing His body that was broken for us. We will drink a cup of grape juice symbolizing His blood that was shed for us. Then if you like you can go and wash someones feet and have your feet washed by someone. Doing as Jesus did for his disciples.
It sounds weird, I agree, but it is an amazingly powerful experience. then we will close with a song and go out into the night as the disciples did the night Jesus was Crucified.
This service is a very powerful moving service. Anyone who has excepted Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior can attend. it is a serious service and as 1 Corinthians 11:26-32 states should not be taken lightly.
If you are uncomfortable with any part of this, don't let it keep you from coming to the service. You will not be judged or looked down on if you do not participate in any part of the service.
Come and observe if you like, Just make sure it is with an open heart for what Jesus has done and continues to do through all of us.
If you have any questions please feel free to text or call me any time. I would love to help you have a better understanding of what this special service is and why we do it.
