Summary Statements
  • Worship is not a pursuit of feelings but a pursuit of God.
  • Corporate worship needs to be safe, honest, and guided.
  • There is no worship without sacrifice.

Communion as Worship

Hear the Message
  • Substitute – the body of Christ is broken instead of us.
  • Covenant – the blood of Christ purchases our forgiveness.

Examine Yourself
  • Is there distance between you and God?
  • Is there division between you and another?

Take the Meal
  • When we eat, we remember what He has done for us.
  • When we eat, we participate in relationship with Him.
