We celebrate communion every week because the Bible gives us a glimpse into the life of the people who first made up the church. Those first Christians gathered together on the first day of the week (Sunday) for the breaking of bread (Acts 20:7). We just want to be like THAT.
Evers Road Christian Church practices “open communion”. If you are a follower of Jesus (regardless of any denominational affiliation) you are welcome to participate in communion.
Communion is offered each Sunday after singing some songs of praise and a short devotion. The elements (represented by grape juice and a small cracker) are passed down each row in trays. Participants are asked to take a small juice cup and cracker. You may hold them until you are ready oryou may take them immediately. If you do not wish to participate in communion for any reason, please do not feel any pressure to do so. Simply pass the communion tray to the next person. You will not be singled out or made to feel uncomfortable.
Evers Road Christian Church views communion as our way to remember Christ’s sacrifice in obedience to Jesus’ Luke 22:19 command: “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.
