Lord's Supper

The Lord’s Supper will be included in the worship service.  We observe this memorial every Sunday. 

The reason for this practice is our desire to follow New Testament teaching.  The first century church celebrated this observance on the first day of the week Acts 20:7.

We believe they did it the first day of every week.  We also know from respected historians that, in early centuries, the Lord’s Supper was an every-Sunday commemoration (Neander, Eusebius).

During this memorial, plates containing pieces of unleavened bread will be passed throughout the congregation.  The bread symbolizes the body of Jesus.  Each participating person will break off a piece of the bread and eat it.

Next, trays filled with small cups will be distributed.  The cups will contain “fruit of the vine,” symbolizing the blood of Jesus 1 Corinthians 11:23-25.  Each participant will drink the contents of one cup.

At Main Street, baptized believers are encouraged and expected to participate in the Lord’s Supper every Sunday.  If you choose not to participate, do not be embarrassed.  Feel free to just pass the plate or tray to the person next to you.

This Supper is the original way of remembering the sacrifice Jesus has made on our behalf.
