The Lord's Supper

At our church, we practice closed communion. That means we have the Lord's supper only with our active Church members. It is a special time, devoted to remembering Christ's sacrifice on the cross and to self-examination. We allow ample time for confession, both public and private. Last night was no exception. We had over an hour of public confession. It is an extremely powerful thing. We are all reminded of how weak we are and how great God is. It also helps keep gossip down, because the truth is known.
We are reminded of the importance of openly confessing Christ as Lord of our lives.

We thank God for providing for our salvation.

We observed the Lord's Supper on Resurrection Sunday. It was a special time as always to recognize and memorialize what Christ did for us on the cross of Calvary. It is and should be a time of reflection and praise and worship.
