The Lord’s Supper
The Lord’s Supper, also called Holy Communion and sometimes the Eucharist, is one of two sacraments in our Christian denomination, the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC). In this sacrament, Christians partake of the bread and the cup, commemorating the death of Jesus Christ and celebrating the new covenant relationship we have with him. We believe that the Lord’s Supper is a means of grace, through which believers receive spiritual nourishment and are united with Christ and with one another.
The Lord’s Supper is a public and corporate act of worship. We believe it should be celebrated by all believers, and that it should be open to all who profess faith in Jesus Christ. At Chapel Hill, the Lord’s Supper is celebrated at various times throughout the year. We pray that if you have placed your trust in Christ, you’ll participate in this bond of love intended to produce mutual love among believers, as well as thanksgiving and gratitude to God.
