At Stonebridge we celebrate communion on the 3rd Sunday of every other month. This weekend we will be taking Communion, and we wanted to let you know that for those who cannot be with us, we will be continuing to run our live stream during Communion and we want you to be ready at your home or as a group to take it with us! Here are some details for you!
WHAT IS COMMUNION?
Communion (the Lord’s Supper) is an ordinance given to all believers by Jesus to remember his sacrifice for us and to symbolize the new covenant.
The elements of bread and wine/juice are symbols of Christ’s broken body and shed blood. Communion is not a means of salvation, rather, it is a testament of a believer’s faith in the atoning work of the cross. If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, join us online to remember his GREAT sacrifice. If you are not in the place where you consider Christ your Savior then sit back and enjoy the service like normal.
HOW TO TAKE COMMUNION ONLINE WITH US?
- Purchase Grape Juice (quantity depends on size of your group)
- Purchase Bread or Baked Crackers: Unleavened bread is the best expression of the “bread” element. Unleavened bread simply is bread baked without a rising agent (most large grocery stores stock unleavened bread), but you can select any bread or cracker of your choice.
- Go to our LiveStream Site: Watch Online
- Be Ready at Home with Your Elements During the Service
Pastor Robin will direct us through properly receiving communion. All you need to do is follow along online individually or as a group.
BE READY FOR THE SERVICE!
