3-31-18 Communion Sabbath



Sharon S.D.A. Church

Seventh-Day Adventists accept the Bible as their only

creed and holds certain fundamental beliefs to be the

teaching of the Holy Scriptures. These beliefs, as set

forth here, constitute the church’s understanding and

expression of the teaching of Scripture. They are

meant to permeate your whole life, growing out of

scriptures that paint a compelling portrait of God. You

are invited to explore, experience, and know the One

who desires to make us whole.

16. The Lord’s Supper

The Lord’s Supper is a participation in the emblems of the

body and blood of Jesus as an expression of faith in Him,

our Lord and Savior. In this experience of communion

Christ is present to meet and strengthen His people. As we

partake, we joyfully proclaim the Lord’s death until He

comes again. Preparation for the Supper includes selfexamination,

repentance, and confession. The Master

ordained the service of foot-washing to signify renewed

cleansing, to express a willingness to serve one another in

Christlike humility, and to unite our hearts in love. The

communion service is open to all believing Christians.

(Matt. 26:17-30; John 6:48-63; 13:1-17; 1 Cor. 10:16, 17;

11:23-30; Rev. 3:20.)

Pastoral Staff


Welcome to our Guests:




We offer our blessings upon each of you who have joined us in worship today. Our

prayer is that you receive the comfort, joy and hope you so stand in need of and

invite you to join us again for a Holy Spirit filled worship experience.

The Desire of Ages by ELLEN G White

None should exclude themselves from the Communion because some who are

unworthy may be present. Every disciple is called upon to participate publicly, and

thus bear witness that he accepts Christ as a personal Savior. It is at these, His own

appointments, that Christ meets His people, and energizes them by His presence.

Hearts and hands that are unworthy may even administer the ordinance, yet Christ

is there to minister to His children. All who come with their faith fixed upon Him

will be greatly blessed. All who neglect these seasons of divine privilege will suffer

loss. Of them it may appropriately be said, "Ye are not all clean."


“United in Christ”

“That they all may be one; as thou, Father, are in me; and I in thee; that they also

may be one in us; that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the

glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we

are one: I in them; and thou in me, that may be made perfect in one; and that the

world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved

me. John 17:21-23
