Multiplied: 2024 Stewardship Campaign
Jesus once took a loaf of bread, broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, “This is my body broken for you.” Later, the Apostle Paul taught that all who follow Jesus have become the body of Christ in the world. And so, every time followers of Jesus share in the sacrament called Communion, this powerful prayer is spoken: “May these gifts of bread and cup be for us the body of Christ, that we might be the body of Christ for the world…”
The loaf of communion bread on the altar is not only a symbol of the life and love of Christ—it’s also a symbol of all those who follow his way in this world. We, like that loaf, are blessed, broken and given to the world in love.
In this series, we’ll explore what it means to be blessed by God, broken by God, and given by God to the world, for God’s redeeming purposes.
