We have communion during our worship service throughout the month. The word “communion” means fellowship, oneness. Some people refer to it as “participating in the Lord’s supper.” The bread and juice symbolize Jesus’ body and blood that were sacrificed to make us right with God. Just as the disciples shared this symbolic meal with Jesus, we share it together in worship each Sunday. It is also a time to repent and commit our hearts afresh to the Lord (Luke 22:19-20, 1 Corinthians 11:23-29).
Everyone who has given their heart to Jesus as their Savior is invited to join in communion at ROL. You can pick up the prepackaged elements of bread and juice as you enter the Fellowship Hall. During the service you will be instructed when to pray and receive it.
If you’re not sure how to pray, you might pray like this: “Jesus, thank You for all You have done for me! I receive Your body and Your blood as my complete source of salvation, righteousness, healing, freedom, and truth! I remember and celebrate You as I eat and drink now. I love You Lord!”
We love to relate! We want people to get to know each other and develop deep, joyful relationships. The coffee shop space, with free wifi, is open to all any time the building is open. Coffee and snacks are available before Sunday services. Coffee is available Wednesday evenings, and during other special events.
