Communion, often called The Lord’s Table, is one of the ordinances of the Church. Jesus instructed us to practice this significant meal together “in remembrance of me” (1 Cor. 11:23-25; Luke 22:18-20; Mark 14:22-25).
Once a month, we gather around the Lord’s Table to celebrate God’s love. This love made us right with him through the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. When we placed our faith in Jesus, we died and were raised to new life in him. A vital part of our corporate worship is pausing to reflect on and celebrate all Christ did so that we could be in union with him. We thank God that he has made us truly alive, fully accepted, completely loved, and intimately known.
Former senior pastor Pete Briscoe taught why Bent Tree considers communion a celebration.
