The Lord’s Table

Preacher:
Passage: Matthew 26:26–29; 1 Corinthians 11:17–34

In this message we remember the Lord’s death by observing Communion together. This intertwines worship, prayer, teaching from the Word, and the receiving of the bread and cup of the Lord. This message was preached in three movements and focuses on what the Scriptures say about the Lord’s Table. We will be in Matthew 26:26-29, where Jesus first observed the Table with his disciples, and 1 Corinthians 11:17-34, where the Apostle Paul gave specific instructions about the observance of the Table.
