We have communion during our service every Sunday morning. 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 take the bread and juice from one of the corners of the room, find a place with others or alone 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!”
