The most important part of our Sunday meetings is the sacrament (or Communion), when we dedicate time to reflect on Jesus and His sacrifice for us.
Symbols of Jesus
The most important part of our Sunday meetings is the sacrament (or Communion). Each week, bread and water are blessed and offered to the congregation. It’s a time when people can meditate, think about Jesus Christ, and feel close to God.
As we eat and drink these symbolic elements, we promise to remember the sacrifice of Jesus and strive to keep His commandments. It’s a wonderful opportunity to feel God’s love for us and invite the Holy Spirit to guide and comfort us.
The first sacrament
On the night before His Crucifixion, Jesus met with His Apostles and instituted the sacrament. He took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me” (Luke 22:19). He then took wine, blessed it, and passed it to them, saying, “This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you” (Luke 22:20).
Today, we take the sacrament as a weekly reminder of the sacrifice made by Jesus Christ, which allows us to be forgiven of our sins and live again after we die.
The Promises and Blessings of the Sacrament
Each week as we take the sacrament, we make special promises to God, and He promises to bless us as we obey.
