Our Lord Jesus, on the night when he was betrayed, instituted the sacrament of his body and blood called the Lord’s Supper, to be observed until the end of the world for:
the perpetual remembrance of the sacrifice of himself and his death,
the sealing of all benefits thereof unto true believers for their spiritual nourishment and growth in him, and their further engagement in and to all the duties which they owe him, and
to be a bond and pledge of their communion with him, and with each other as members of his mystical body.
We celebrate the Lord’s Supper once a month, usually on the second Sunday of the month. The Lord’s Supper is open to all who have publicly made a profession of faith in Christ and who are communicants in good standing in any evangelical church.
Children and the Lord’s Supper
The following is the Session’s policy on admitting children to the Lord’s table:
The Lord’s Supper is a special meal only for those who believe in Jesus Christ as their very own Lord and Savior and have previously been baptized.
This faith in Jesus Christ is to be a public profession of their faith.
Therefore, children wishing to partake of the Lord’s Supper are required to meet with the pastor, assistant pastor, or two elders in order to publicly profess their faith in Jesus.
