Bruce Symes gave the communion meditation at Sunday’s service.
Communion isn’t just for when at church or Bible study. It can be when you’re home alone, or with those you love, Symes said. It’s a matter of the heart. Two thousand years ago, unleavened bread and wine were used on a daily basis, but they became extraordinary when they were given another task by Jesus. We were also given a new task by Jesus, to go and spread the good news. Jesus has made us extraordinary!
Pastor Chase Riebel gave the sermon over how there are four ways to help us deal with these uncertain times, by using certainty, commitment, cheerfulness and courage.
