Has communion become a ritual? Let’s look at the Last Supper, where taking communion began, in order to understand this celebration better. The place where Jesus shared His final meal with His companions of three years is significant. They had walked together, eaten together, prayed together, and ministered together daily. The disciples didn’t know where they were going to eat the Passover meal, but Jesus did. He told Peter and John exactly where to go and who had prepared a place for them. Jesus also shared intimate knowledge about what was about to take place. One of them would betray Him. He was going someplace they couldn’t go. He spoke of a new commandment—they must love one another just like He loved each of them. Jesus prepared a place in His heart for us. Communion encourages us to prepare a place in our hearts for Him.
Mark 14:12-15 NIV
On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, when it was customary to sacrifice the Passover lamb, Jesus’ disciples asked him, “Where do you want us to go and make preparations for you to eat the Passover?” So he sent two of his disciples, telling them, “Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him. Say to the owner of the house he enters, ‘The Teacher asks: Where is my guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?’ He will show you a large room upstairs, furnished and ready. Make preparations for us there.”
In cooperation with orders from the PA Department of Health, and out of a heart of concern and care for our community, masks are now required for everyone ages 2+ while inside Parker Hill Church buildings.
