The Table of Jesus, or Holy Communion, is central to the life of our church. Jesus instituted his supper with his disciples on the last night he was with them and said, “Do this in remembrance of me.” Jesus promised to be with the church whenever the church broke bread in his name. The disciple community has broken bread ever since and communed in his presence. It is at the Table of Jesus that we are spiritually nurtured and gathered in union with Christ and his church.
March 19, 26, and April 2, John Collett is leading a Sunday school series in the chapel on what it means to be and live as guests of the Table of Jesus. We enact this gathering at the Table of Jesus each Sunday in the 8:15 a.m. service and on the first Sunday in the 10:30 a.m. service. We enact the supper Jesus hosted for his disciples and in many cases for the masses. The “breaking of bread” has been throughout the church’s history the means by which the church “communes” with Jesus. We believe Jesus is the host of his table to which all are welcomed.
