Always Give Us this Bread (Communion Sunday) - Everything You Need To Know
Can Church exist without communion? What do you think? I've had to think about this a lot. Without communion what is the church? A place of social connection, a place of activism, a place of love and service -- none of these things are bad, but these things can be mistaken for church rather than the fruits of communion. Communion is the life of the church - and the rest is the overflow of it.
So, I've wrestled with this over the past few months when hopefully we've had communion with Jesus, but we haven't been able to share the meal of communion together. But we have found a way to share the Lord's Supper together! And it is happening this Sunday (details to follow).
If you are able, and it is safe for you, please join us in person. We have a large space in the Gym and are able to stay distanced with masks, and if at all possible it would be great to see you! 10:30am at 333 Midpark Way SE.
