Join the ministry to the homebound by sharing Communion

 

In 1 Corinthians 11:23-26 we read Paul’s words of the Lord’s Supper: For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

What a joy it is to come together with others that serve our risen Savior and take the bread and then drink the juice and worship our Lord and Savior by this beautiful observance. It is a time of reflection, as we know that we are completely unworthy on our own, but because of the sacrifice of God’s Son, we have the invitation to come directly to Him and worship Him. Praise the name of the Lord.

At La Vernia United Methodist Church there is a group of giving people, led by Don Miller, that take the Lord’s Supper to shut-ins in our community. On the second Tuesday of each month, they go to the nursing home and have a beautiful service; sharing Christ’s love in music, words, hugs, and the Holy Communion.

It is a time of rejoicing with those that are unable to attend church on a regular basis. It is a beautiful time of singing hymns with such meaning and it is a time to share words of praise for His love, and then it is a time to share the love of Jesus with the taking of the bread, representing His body and the juice, representing His blood.

The love that glows in the room is outstanding and the giving of the communion is a time of rejoicing in God’s love and His grace. Then the ministry to the homebound goes to homes of those that are unable to get out. They again take love, words of encouragement, and the Holy Communion to those that love the Lord but cannot be at the services at the church because of their infirmities.

This is certainly a ministry of love for the homebound and love for Christ and His witness to all of us. You can join in this beautiful ministry by contacting Don Miller and asking to take part and of course, you can be a beautiful part of the ministry by praying for the homebound and those in the nursing home.

And, communion is served every first Sunday at the church and you are invited to be part of this beautiful time of reflection upon our Lord and Savior and His sacrifice for all of us. You are invited to join with us there. There is a traditional service at 8:30 a.m. and a contemporary service at 11 a.m. Join with us as we celebrate communion and God’s love.
