For whom is the Lord’s Supper intended? May we point you to the language of the Directory for the Public Worship of God of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church? We “invite all who are right with God and his church, through faith in the Lord Jesus, to come to the Lord’s Table. If you have received Christ and are resting upon him alone for salvation, as he is offered to you in the gospel, if you are a baptized and professing communicant member in good standing in a church that professes the gospel of God’s free grace in Jesus Christ, and if you live penitently and seek to walk in godliness before the Lord, then this Supper is for you, and [we] invite you in Christ’s name to eat the bread and drink the cup.” (III.C.3)
If you have questions, we invite you to speak with the pastor or one of the elders. We recognize that the emphasis on the importance of church membership may be unfamiliar to some. We recommend the booklet, “Why Join a Church?” summarizing the Bible’s teaching on the importance of church membership. Copies are available on the table in the entry and here. The communion tray contains both wine (the inner rings) and grape juice (the outer ring).
We welcome children in our worship services. The nursery room is available for pre-school children if needed. Children’s bulletins are available for your child to use during the service, if you wish.
