    We love Jesus. He is our Sovereign Servant, our Savior, and our King.

    It’s our habit to celebrate together at His Table every Sunday. …Why?

    The Bread and the Cup are a reminder of what Jesus did for us on the cross, and of the New Covenant he established for all who look to him with saving faith.

    It is a participation in the body and blood of Jesus that we enjoy together as a church.

    It is a declaration that Jesus is our greatest joy and our only Lord.

    It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the gravity of our sin, but most of all on the forgiving power of our Great Savior, whose blood was spilt and whose body was broken for us.

    Finally, the Table we celebrate isn’t only a proclamation of Jesus’ death, but also an eager anticipation of his glorious return.

    (Luke 22:14-20 and 1 Corinthians 10:14-22; 11:17-34)

    If you understand these things to be true;
    if you know Christ Jesus as your Savior and your Lord;
    and if you humbly and joyfully recognize your unity with other believers;
    then we welcome you to enjoy this Table with us.

    But if not, we urge you not to partake today.

    Instead, please think about these things,
    and talk with us after the service,
    to find out more know about the One who gave us this Table.
