5 Ways the Lord's Supper Is Important for the Local Church
Church Questions is a series that seeks to provide ordinary Christians with sound and accessible biblical teaching by answering common questions about church life. Each volume offers biblical answers and practical applications with the goal of nurturing healthy church practice and commitment.
For a new Christian, or even someone who has followed the Lord for years, the Lord's Supper can feel somewhat mysterious. This leads some to simply go through the motions without ever knowing why it's done. In this short booklet, pastor Aubrey Sequeira offers 5 ways the Lord's Supper is important for the local church. As Christians look backward (remembrance), outward (togetherness), upward (spiritual nourishment), inward (reflection), and forward (anticipation), they will discover the rich meaning behind the institution of the Lord's Supper.
