Preparing to Celebrate the Lord’s Supper Again

…and why it should feel more like a wedding than a funeral.

Chris Hutchison on September 3, 2020

This Sunday, we are planning to celebrate the Lord’s Supper together. We’ll be in two different rooms in the same building—perhaps not all that different from how it would have happened in the early church—but we’ll be together, at the same time, and I can’t wait.

It might be helpful to review some of what we learned about the Lord’s Supper back in May. Below is a link to that message—called “Do This in Remembrance of Me”—which you can read, listen to, or watch.

The Passover, the Lord's Supper, and the church.

Below you can also listen to Andrew Peterson’s excellent song “Remember and Proclaim.” It’s a song that captures perfectly the fact that communion is something we should celebrate; it shouldn’t feel like a funeral.

I am so looking forward to remembering and proclaiming with you on Sunday!
