This Sunday Worship at Living Hope
This Sunday's message: The Fall - Genesis 3:1-19
Join us this Sunday, July 3 at 10am
Every communion Sunday we pause our preaching series to celebrate the meaning behind the Lord’s Supper.
We’ve entitled this series “Little cup. Big Story. Blessed Family”
This Sunday we will discover Part 3 "The Fall" from Genesis 3:1-19.
Everything was going so well in paradise. Adam and Eve were so happy. And all of sudden we encounter God the Father coming down to have some of their usual blessed cool breeze of the evening sabbath fellowship.
Those times after a long day of work in the garden must have been so refreshing for Adam and Eve.
But this time something is dreadfully wrong. Adam and Eve are hiding from their King in shame. The loving Father cries out to them in the stillness of the garden, “Where are you?”.
The story behind the communion is a story of Paradise lost but also of Paradise regained.
Let's come this Sunday in a spirit of solitude and prayer, with a heart prepared to drink and eat the communion meal celebrating Jesus' victorious breaking of the curse.
His finished work on the cross allows us to enjoy the Father’s blessed presence without guilt or shame. As we draw near to him deeper and deeper we are filled with His love and empowered to love others in this sin sick world.
The Lord's supper reminds us that we need our daily bread, constant repentance and the Kingdom nearness of the Father, Son, and Spirit.
The Lord's Supper is also a public confession that we are all still following Jesus together as one Blessed Family.

This two part series (8 lessons each) will be transformational in your life. Part 1 teaches us to be loved by God. Part 2 calls us to a deeper love for others.
It can be done alone as a self study with access to pastoral care if needed or with a group. We will have many different groups forming in the months ahead.
