HOW TO TAKE COMMUNION AT HOME
And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.”
OUR GUIDE TO COMMUNION AT HOME
1) Put aside distractions
To best prepare our hearts to take communion as a church body, set aside anything that may be a distraction during the service: Phones, pets, meals, etc.
2) Have your Communion elements ready
This can be as simple as just using what you have available! Remember, our heart posture is the most important thing about taking communion.
Some things that may already be in your pantry:
-Bread or crackers/wafers (to represent Christ’s body)
-Any type of juice or tea (to represent Christ’s blood)
If you don’t have these items at home to use and find yourself on a trip to the grocery store this week, you can pick up a loaf of bread or oyster crackers and some grape juice. Reach out to us if you may not have these things available and our pastors can help guide you with some more suggestions on what to use!
3) Participate & Pray
Prepare your heart, and follow along as the pastor guides us in taking communion together. Remember Christ's sacrifice on the cross, and what it means for us today as believers in Jesus. Parents, if your children have professed faith in Christ, you can guide them in taking communion along with you.
