  • Today we will be celebrating the Lord’s Supper in our worship service. This ordinance was instituted personally by Christ to be observed in his churches for the perpetual remembrance and showing forth the sacrifice in his death. It is given as a confirmation of the faith of believers in all the benefits of Christ’s death, their spiritual nourishment and growth in him, a reminder of the duties which they owe to him and a pledge of their communion with him and with each other.  Therefore, it is the privilege and duty of believers to spiritually receive and feed upon Christ crucified in this ordinance.  To that end, we warmly invite all baptised members of a local Bible-believing church to join with us in remembering our Lord.
