The Lord's Supper

The Lord's Supper

Communion or the “Lord’s Supper” is a partaking of the bread and cup together in remembrance of Jesus’ broken body and shed blood (Matt. 26:26-29, Mark 14:22-25, Luke 22:7-23, 1 Cor. 11:17-34). This meal helps us look both backward and forward, because it is a means of proclaiming the Lord’s death until He returns (1 Cor. 11:26).

When we celebrate the Lord’s supper, the bread and the cup are not changed into the actual body and blood of Jesus, but neither is the Table solely a memorial. Christ communicates His real spiritual presence with His people whenever we tangibly take Communion together.

First Evan practices an “open table” meaning it is the Lord’s table, not First Evan’s table. If you join us and know Christ as Savior, you are invited to participate, whether you are a member or not.
