The Lord's Supper or Communion is celebrated in weekly worship. It is open to all who
are followers of Jesus Christ. The practice of Holy Communion has become the central
element of worship within the Disciples tradition.
Disciples' observance of the Lord's Supper echoes the Passover feast, when Jesus shared
bread and wine with his disciples on the eve of his crucifixion. Through the power of the
Holy Spirit, the living Christ is met and received in the sharing of the bread and the cup,
representative of the body and blood of Jesus. The presence of the living Lord is
affirmed and He is proclaimed to be the dominant power in our lives.
