Each Sunday morning at 9:30, we take time to remember and worship Christ during the Lord's Supper service (also referred to as the "Breaking of Bread"). This time of worship is "the Lord's Supper" because it belongs to the Lord Jesus Christ. His person and work are the focus.
Before going to the Cross to die for our sins, Jesus gathered His closest followers together. After breaking bread and drinking a cup of wine with them, He commanded them to "Do this in remembrance of Me" (Luke 22:19, 1 Corinthians 11:24-25). He explained that the bread represents His body and the cup His blood "poured out for the forgiveness of sins" (Matthew 26:26-28). The early church took Christ's command seriously and remembered Him often in this way (Acts 2:46).
This public expression of obedience, worship and thanksgiving to Jesus Christ through the Breaking of Bread brings Him glory and honor which He rightly deserves.
Because the act of remembering Christ is so important to Him, it's a priority for us too. This is why the Lord's Supper is one of Westside Bible Fellowship's core meetings and why we take time to remember and worship Him each week. All who have personally put their faith in Christ are encouraged to make this important service a priority.
If you have trusted Christ as your Savior, we welcome you to partake of the bread and the cup (we offer a choice of grape juice or wine). If you are not a believer yet, it is our hope that one day you will join us for this celebration and remembrance of our Savior.
The Lord Jesus knew that we are a forgetful people. He knew that the idols of this world could easily distract us from a life daily devoted to Him. It's essential that we constantly remind each other of the precious and inexhaustible truth of who our Lord and Savior is and what He has done. As we remember Him together, the knowledge and appreciation for Christ and His work becomes a catalyst that can help us experience the daily power and victory over sin that is available to us through His death, and resurrection.
