We participate in Holy Communion because Jesus Christ modeled this meal of thanksgiving, known as The Last 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.”
1 Corinthians 11:23-26
At Chapel Hill, we celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion at every worship service and deeply believe that the Lord, Jesus Christ, welcomes all persons to His table.
We serve Holy Communion by method of intinction. When you receive the bread, dip it into the chalice. Gluten-free wafers are available.
Holy Communion is also sometimes referred to as “The Lord’s Supper” or “The Eucharist.”
