Sunday, April 5
This Sunday, April 5, we will be celebrating communion together as the Body of Christ, and we invite you to participate with us wherever you are. Prior to the service, have your bread (honey wheat, focaccia, gluten free. etc – it doesn’t matter) and juice ready, and we’ll prompt you during the service to partake of the elements.
We know this may be a new experience for some of you, to participate in communion at home; thus, we remind you of the last supper, which also took place in a home:
“On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?”He replied, “Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher says: My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.’” So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover….
While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.”
Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you, I will not drink from this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”
When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.” – Matthew 26:17-19; 26-30
Throughout Holy Week
As we remember Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem, we invite you to find a palm branch (or tree limb of any sort) and affix it to your front door this week, helping us to remember all that Jesus endured throughout Holy Week. And as a way to encourage others, feel free to snap a photo of it and share it with us online, too!
