Communion (or, the Lord’s Supper) is one of two ordinances of the church, instructed by Jesus (the other ordinance is baptism).
TCC participates in communion on the last Sunday of each month, on Family Sunday. Near the conclusion of the service, small pieces of bread and small cups of grape juice are distributed throughout the worship center. Led by the pastor, the ordinance of communion involves Scripture reading, prayer, and instructions about when to eat and drink the elements.
Those elements (the bread and the juice) are a tangible representation to us – they are symbols – of the body and the blood of Jesus, the Son of God, who died on a cross in the place of sinners to save us from sin and death.
Communion at TCC is open to anyone who has repented of sin, believed the Gospel of Jesus, and been baptized. By sharing in communion, believers proclaim in a visible and tangible way that the broken body and shed blood of Jesus was given for them.
Communion is intended to remind us of the death of Jesus and of how Jesus unites us to each other in the church.
