Some Guidelines and Instructions for Communion

Communion, or the Lord's Supper, is a time where we remember what Jesus did for us.

We join together to remember Jesus sacrifice for us by dying on the cross. Jesus told us we should continue to take time to do this to continually remember what He has done for us. The bread reminds us of Jesus' body, and the cup reminds us of the new agreement between God and His people, confirmed by His blood. Jesus died to take the punishment we all deserve so that we won't have to be punished when we die, but will go to Heaven with Him. Communion is a very special time to remember and reflect upon God’s great love for us through His Son, the Lord Jesus. More than a ritual, it’s a very special time where we are to celebrate with a heart of worship.


Here’s some simple instructions for celebrating Communion:

  • Prepare the elements for Communion. Bread or crackers. Cups of juice.

  • Start by reading a passage explaining Communion:

    • Luke 11:14-20

    • 1 Cor. 11:23-29

  • If there are children present, share with them what Jesus has done for them. You might even ask them to share something they want to thank Jesus for.

  • You may want to include a worship song, a song to thank God for His love.

  • Pass the elements, the bread and the cups, to everyone present.

  • Pray and thank God for His love. Thank Jesus for His obedience to His Father and for dying for all of us. Pray that you would all remember what Jesus has done for you.


Celebrating Communion can be a very powerful time of worship and reflection for you and those gathered with you. May God fill your homes with His presence and power as you celebrate and remember what the Lord Jesus has done for you.
