The Lord's Table
Holy Communion is the Lord’s own institution whereby His people participate in the saving benefits of His body and blood (I Corinthians 9: 16). Regular observance of this sacrament is encouraged by scriptural precedent. We ordinarily observe the Lord’s Table on the first Sunday of each month.
The Love Feast
Every other month, Providence follows Communion with a Christian Love Feast reminiscent of the practice of the early church (I Corinthians 10:16). This potluck meal is a time to rejoice in our common salvation and to fellowship together as a church.
