Announcements, February 5, 2016
This Sunday we’ll hit the pause button on our series through the Sermon on the Mount to look at the purpose, practice, and importance of communion. To do this, we’ll work through 1 Corinthians 11:17–34, where Paul instructs the church on how we should approach “the Lord’s table.”
Communion and baptism are pictures of the gospel that the Lord has given to the church to help us remember his work on our behalf, celebrate the gospel, and identify and mark off the church so that it might be a clearer display of his grace to an onlooking world. Therefore, understanding what we are doing when we come to the Lord’s table is of utmost importance. Take some time to read the text before Sunday and prepare your hearts to gather around the table together.
See you Sunday!
