Communion Service

This Sabbath, we will have the Communion Service. Please do the Foot Washing Service at home, with your family on Friday evening or Sabbath morning.

A recipe of the communion bread has been posted on our website's front page, in case you would like to make your own bread and drink your own grape juice.

Communion at the Seventh-day Adventist Church: The Lord’s Supper is a participation in the emblems of the body and blood of Jesus as an expression of faith in Him, our Lord and Saviour. In this experience of communion Christ is present to meet and strengthen His people. As we partake, we joyfully proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes again. Preparation for the Supper includes self-examination, repentance, and confession. The Master ordained the service of foot-washing to signify renewed cleansing, to express a willingness to serve one another in Christlike humility, and to unite our hearts in love. The communion service is open to all believing Christians. (Matt. 26:17-30; John 6:48-63; 13:1-17; 1 Cor. 10:16, 17; 11:23-30; Rev. 3:20.)

The service will be saved on our Facebook Page, Youtube, and church website: https://livestream.com/owsdachurch.
