CELEBRATING THE LORD'S SUPPER

As a sign of our unity in Christ, let us hold the cup

until all have been served and partake together.

 

The Invitation


One:

Jesus Christ, the risen Lord invites us to this feast,

to the banquet served in his honor with bread broken for peace,

and with wine poured in joy. O Lord, we hear your invitation

and remember your work:


Many:

From creation to redemption;

from redemption to this day;

from this day to the day you will come again.


One:

Praise God for this banquet.


Many:

Praise God for this feast


One:

Praise God who makes all things new. 

The Great Thanksgiving

 

One:

The Lord be with you.

 

Many:

And also with you.

The Eucharistic Prayer

The Lord's Prayer

(in unison)

 

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.


The Breaking of Bread


One:

While they were eating, Jesus took a loaf of bread, and after blessing it he broke it, gave it to them, and said, 


Many:

"Take; this is my body." 


One:

Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks, he gave it to them and they drank from it. He said to them, 


Many:

"This is the cup of my new covenant, which is poured out for many."


One:

"Truly I tell you, I will never again drink of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God."

The Prayer after Communion

(in unison)

 

Holy God, giver of wine and bread, send us from your table in confidence that we are your own children, born of your Spirit, feed at your table, filled with your grace, sent forth in your truth, offering your love to the world in Christ’s name. Amen.
