Webster’s describes communion as “an act or instance of sharing”.
Holy Communion is a sharing of a common faith and coming together in commemoration of the gift of salvation we received from Jesus at his death on the cross.
Praise, thanksgiving and worship songs are part of this service. The main part is when everyone partakes of the bread and the wine (or grape juice).
Christ’s body is symbolized by the bread and Christ’s blood is symbolized by the drink.
When people participate in communion, they are sharing a sacred and intimate fellowship with each other and with God.
