What must have it been like to have been born blind, then have Jesus put mud over your eyes, then to be able to see? This week's worship looks at
During our 30-minute time together we hope that you will sing or keep time with the hymns, join in our prayer and scripture--
And at the last of our worship we'll be sharing in a time of communion: breaking of the bread together. This is a symbolic act for us, remembering Jesus' words to his disciples at the last supper, to share in the communion in remembrance of Jesus life and redeeming acts.
If you prefer during our short time of communion, you can use the moments for prayer and meditation. If you would like to share in communion with us physically, please have ready a piece of bread, rice or similar food, and some type of drink (we use grape juice, but other drinks will work). These represent the broken body and the blood of Jesus Christ given on our behalf. As we pray for the communion, our prayer includes what is on the table before you.
We hope you will feel at home worshipping with us, and feel a blessing from being part. Please help us spread the word about DisciplesNet Church, especially to those who are not able to attend a physical church.
May God bless you richly!
