Jesus’ Last Supper, the Passover meal He shared with His disciples on the night before He was crucified, is the biblical foundation for the Communion meal celebrated in His honor by Christians all over the world today. With His twelve friends gathered around Him for the traditional Jewish Passover meal, Jesus “took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is My body, given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.’ In the same way, after supper He took the cup, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is poured out for you'” (Luke 22:19–20).
Communion is a celebration of the miracle of our new life that we have in Christ through His death that paid for our sins. It is a remembrance of what Jesus did that shapes how we live today in relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
Communion is taken during our Sunday morning worship services on the first and third weekend of each month. All believers in Jesus Christ are welcome to take Communion at River of Life.
