This Lord’s Day we begin a New Year remembering the death of Jesus with a Communion Service. We also continue our study of Luke’s Gospel, focusing on the second request contained in the “Lord’s Prayer.” What is the relationship between the Lord’s Table and the prayer, “Thy kingdom come?” Our service will explore the answer to that question.
