Lord’s Supper Observance
Our belief is the Bible teaches only those professing faith in Jesus Christ have the privilege of partaking in this sacrament and Christ gave the responsibility of overseeing the Lord’s Supper to the elders of the church. Since they are accountable to Christ for the spiritual well-being of His church, the elders have the responsibility of knowing the profession of faith of each person who partakes. In the RPCNA, in order to come to the Lord’s table, each member of our congregation has met with the elders and professed their faith in Jesus along with a commitment to His church.
The Treasure Valley RPC mission does not yet have an established pattern of celebrating the Lord’s Supper. Please come back to this page for more information once our elders finalize our practice.
If you visit us on a Sunday when we offer the Lord’s Supper and would like to partake with us, we ask you to meet with the elders before the service so we can get to know you and hear your brief profession of faith. We do not desire to hear all the nitty-gritty details, but how Jesus led you to Himself.
Should you not be sure of your commitment to Jesus Christ, and/or are not a member of another church, we ask you to allow the elements as they are passed without feeling any embarrassment for not partaking.
Please contact us through the Contact page if you have any questions, or want to set up a time to meet with Pastor Ryan.
