|[Jesus] took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, "This is the body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me." And he did the same with the cup...saying, "This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood."
—Luke 22:19– 20 NRSV
Communion (Lord's Supper)
Community of Christ congregations worldwide, celebrate Communion regularly. Communion is sometimes called "the Lord's Supper." In Communion, we typically use bread and grape juice as emblems of Jesus’ body and blood. As we recall his suffering, death, and resurrection, we recommit ourselves to following him. Community of Christ practices open Communion. This means we welcome all who believe in Christ to share the Lord’s Supper with us, whether they are members of our denomination or not.
