Communion

The Chapel celebrates Communion as a church body on the first Sunday of every month.


What is Communion?

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 – those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ for salvation -- to remember that the Lord gave His body and shed his blood for all people. (see Luke 22:19-20).
 
Prior to receiving Communion, believers must prepare and examine their hearts, confessing sin to the Lord, so they do not partake “in an unworthy manner.” (1 Corinthians 11:27-28)

Meaning and symbolism of communion

The bread and wine that once comprised the Lord’s Supper may today be replaced with crackers and grape juice. Their symbolism, however, remains the same. The bread epitomizes Christ’s body, which was beaten and battered for us as He died for the sins of humanity. The cup signifies 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).
