Please note that an opportunity for the Lord’s Supper will be extended during this online service.
You can participate in our CVC Good Friday communion experience from your home. Communion (the Lord’s Supper) is an ordinance given to all believers by Jesus to remember His sacrifice for us. If you are a true believer in Jesus Christ and are in good standing with us at Cuyahoga Valley Church, you are invited to join us online to remember His selfless sacrifice. Consider this as an invitation, not a requirement.
If you don’t feel led to participate or if you feel uncomfortable for any reason about participating, then don’t participate. At that point in the service on Friday, simply lift up your heart in gratitude to God for the sacrifice of His Son. If you are not in the place where you consider Christ Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior or if you are unrepentant about sin in your life, then we would encourage you to pray quietly while others celebrate the Lord’s Supper together.
HOW TO TAKE COMMUNION ONLINE
- Prepare your heart: Confess all known sin. Seek restoration with anyone you may have hurt or offended. God’s Word says that we should not eat of the Lord’s Supper in an unworthy way.
- Gather the elements: Grape juice and bread or crackers – find elements that best approximate those that we would use for Lord’s Supper at CVC.
- Prepare the juice: Serve the juice in individual small glasses for each participant. We encourage you to use glasses that you would not normally use. This will help you and your family remember the significance of Communion.
- Prepare the bread or crackers: Use a special dish or tray. When you share the elements, allow people in your family to access the elements one at a time in order to maintain a safe distance from one another.
- Follow the directions: The Teaching Pastor will guide you to eat and drink together with others in the CVC family of faith.
