The Lord's Supper

1 Cor. 11:23-26

What we believe
1. The bread and wine are symbolic - ie. pictures of His body broken and blood shed for us.
2. His people should celebrate the Lord's Supper (participate in) - 1 Cor. 11:24 - "do this"

How we celebrate
we gather
we worship
we partake (of the bread and wine)
we fellowship (potluck)

Why do we do this?
To remember His sacrifice
To demonstrate our faith (in His Sacrifice)
To celebrate our common bond (sinners/saints/brothers/sisters)
To renew our vows
To anticipate His return - 1 Cor. 11:26

Who should participate
Believers - Christians - this is "The Lord's supper"

Final word: Note: 1 Cor. 11:27-29
So examine yourself, make preparation, come and celebrate

Now our worship is or should be focused on Him - His work, His sacrifice, His table, etc.
