Things to Read & Know Before Partaking of the Lord’s Supper With Us
Every first Lord’s Day of the month, we have a holy feast for our souls as we partake of the Lord’s Supper. You are invited to partake of this holy food with us if you readâ€”and agree withâ€”the following articles:
- “Four Views of the Lord’s Supper.” Our view is the last one presented. (Download PDF)
- We practice close communion.Â Find out what we mean by this inÂ “Open, Closed, or Close Communion?”Â (Download PDF)
When you come and desire to join us, please speak first to one of our elders. He will give you a short, half-page, Yes/No questionnaire to answer. When you’re done with the questionnaire, please hand it back to the elder and if you meet the requirements, he will invite you to join us. (Download PDF questionnaire,Â two forms in one page).
If you were visiting us and you were late, we’re sorry that you will not be allowed to participate.
A Preparatory ReadingÂ is also helpful before partaking.Â This helps prevent the danger of the celebration becoming ritualistic. It tells us of our need to examine ourselves before participating in the Communion. (Download PDF)
