And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.Luke 22:19-20
Traditionally, CBC celebrates Communion on the second Sunday of each month. There are two exceptions—in December, we celebrate Communion on Christmas Eve instead of the second Sunday, and we also celebrate Communion on Maundy Thursday and other occasions as determined.
All are welcome to partake! Communion is open to anyone who proclaims Jesus as Lord and Savior regardless of church membership, denominational affiliation, baptism status, or any other reason.
Throughout the year, we will offer two different modes of Communion. One is a mode found in traditional Baptist churches in which the pastor and deacons distribute the elements to worshippers sitting in their pews. The other mode is intinction, which is often found in liturgical churches and involves worshippers coming to the front to be served by pastors and deacons and dipping the bread into a cup of grape juice. The other form of Communion is still offered to those who wish to remain seated on these Sundays.
Due to COVID-19, CBC has indefinitely suspended distributing Communion elements in worship. We will still offer a Communion liturgy for those who wish to follow along at home.
