Note of Introduction from Ann M. Wolf
Dearest Friends & Family “In Christ”;
Communion offers us a special opportunity to “Remember” the sacrifices of Jesus at the time of his passion and death as well as to reflect on the many examples of Love and Mercy given to us throughout his life and ministry on earth.
Why do we do this? We “Remember” so we might follow in the Footsteps of the Master Jesus, which is a path which will require much commitment and the development of character of soul. This is a path for which we will need to refresh our hearts and minds on a regular basis in order to continue in our daily resolve to become those who are known by their “Fruit”; and Communion is ideal for aiding us in this endeavor.
On this page you will find Links to other resources such as an Overview of Communion well as Links to music & videos which can be used for conducting your own personal or group Communion Service.
For additional Study Material on the subject of Communion, please READ MORE about the Guided Study Plan and Book, “Becoming the Church,” which covers “Communion” in depth.
May you experience the depth of God’s Mercy and Love in your Communion experiences!

MOTL – Suggested Communion Service Script
“This do in remembrance of me.”- 1 Corinthians 11:24 (KJV)
“Welcome to the Lord’s Table and to our Communion Ceremony!”
Before we begin, let’s take a moment to consider the purpose of our Ceremony.
Communion offers us a special opportunity to “Remember” the sacrifices of Jesus at the time of his passion and death as well as to reflect on the many examples of Love and Mercy which he gave us throughout his life and ministry on earth.
Why do we do this? We “Remember” so we might follow in the Footsteps of the Master, a path which will require much commitment and the development of character of soul; a path for which we will need to refresh our hearts and minds on a regular basis in order to continue in our daily resolve to become those who are known by their Fruit.
In Galatians 5:22-23 , Fruit of the Spirit is described with these verses:
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” (KJV)
Communion involves “Belief” in that we think about and appreciate what occurred in the life of Jesus some 2000 years ago. Yet, we are also celebrating what is possible for our souls to achieve by the Grace of God in becoming spiritual in nature.
Host continues to Read:
Throughout that process of soul-development, it is likely that all of us struggle from time to time in being able to consistently forgive; and we may find it hard to demonstrate Fruit of the Spirit or hold to Mercy in the face of difficult or painful events.
But via the New Nature (by the Spirit) we can learn to forgive; and we can become vessels for Spiritual Fruit, which is why we need the Spirit and why examples which Jesus left us are so important to “Remember” and to draw from frequently and as often as needed.
So in moving closer to the goal of becoming “Christ-like,”… we remind ourselves during Communion, that we have been given the Gift of the Holy Ghost (which is Grace,) bringing the Resurrection Power, to lift us, to enable us, and to carry us where we cannot go without that help.
We also ask the Spirit or the New Man at Communion time, not only to “discern” our hearts and motives, but to show us where we might need to come up higher in our Love Walk.
After we are clear and responsive to what “chastening” or encouragement that there is to receive from the “Greater He” within us, we move on to partake of the Bread, representing mercy and representing all of us in the Body who are to be the Bread of Mercy.
Then, we take the Fruit of the Vine, representing the Spirit within us by which we can transform; all of this is done in celebration of our New and wonderful Covenant.
Here are some words from Scripture which can help us appreciate the benefits of receiving correction from the Holy Spirit.
In 1 Corinthians 11:32 we find, “But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.” (KJV)
In this Scripture we see that whenever we submit to being examined or “judged” by the Spirit, by the Christ in us or “of the Lord” as the verse states, we are then open and able to be corrected and redirected, especially if we have become side-tracked or distracted from a focus on the Spirit.
As our soul identifies more and more with the Spirit of Christ…or… as “the two become one,” that is… the soul and the Spirit, we find ourselves living more and more by the leading of the Holy Spirit.
In Proverbs 3:11-13 we read, “My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord; neither be weary of his correction; For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. Happy is the man that findeth wisdom and the man that getteth understanding.”
Host Reads: Let Us Prepare For Communion
We begin our Ceremony with the “Our Father” as we contemplate the wonderful meaning of the words.
Our Father which art in heaven
Hallowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, and the power
And the Glory for ever… Amen”
Host continues reading: Immediately after Jesus teaches this prayer we see that He adds in Matthew 6:14 & 15, “For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: but if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” With this, we see how important that Mercy and Forgiveness is to Jesus.
Now, let us pray and sit silently for a few moments and seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit and during our meditation if a name or face comes to mind of someone who is difficult to deal with or hard to forgive, lets pray together and ask God to help us “move that mountain” from our hearts.
Pause for meditation…
Let’s look at the words of Jesus in Matthew 5:44 through 48: “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? Do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? Do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore, perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”
Let’s read now from Scripture about our Lord’s Supper: “And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him. And he said unto them, “With desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer: For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the Kingdom of God.” And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, “Take this, and divide it among yourselves: For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the Kingdom of God shall come.” And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, “This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.” Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the New Testament in my blood, which is shed for you.” Luke 22: 14-20 (KJV)
Sharing of the Bread & Wine (or Juice)
Host Reads: Finally, let us share the Bread and the fruit of the vine (Wine or Juice) as we continue “In remembrance” of our Lord; affirming that we are to Be the Bread of Mercy everywhere we go, as we represent Him.
And as we drink the wine, we “Remember” our New Covenant of which Grace brings us the power to change, so that we can become the people of God which He has in mind and that we can fulfill the calling and purpose of our souls in this life.
Let us pray,
“Lord, help us to walk in mercy as we hold close to your Grace, help us to greet everyone we meet with your love; and help us become vessels of honor, bringing your Peace to others, now and always. Amen.”
