Daily Bread Outreach program

Forbes Church is distributing Our Daily Breads throughout the community. The idea is that people see them and pick up one of these devotionals and get to hear about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are looking for your help. We are looking for prayer support, some financial support (although costs are minimal) and if you would like to help distribute the Daily Breads. We are also looking for places, businesses, shops and the like to place the box of 15 Daily Breads. We are presently in various places and we thank those places who are participating. It is going well.  So if you would like to have a box in your place please let us know or if you know of someone who might like a box in their place please contact us. You can contact us through the church office at 780-539-5125 or through email at forbespc@telusplanet.net

If you have any questions or want more information please contact us. Thanks

 

The Significance of the Lord’s Supper

The Significance of the Lord’s Supper

 

Text: 1 Corinthians 11

 

Today is Communion Sunday. The Sacrament of Holy Communion is something that we celebrate every month of the year. We see the importance of coming together as a community of faith to celebrate the Sacrament. However too often in this day and age we forget the real significance of the Lord’s Supper. So in order to attempt to overcome this would like to consider with you the significance of the Lord’s Supper on the communion Sunday. I intend to look at the significance from 4 areas: as a memorial observance, a symbolic observance, a continuing observance and a church observance. Then I hope to tie it altogether as we look at the Observance of the Lord’s Supper.

 

My prayer is that through the sermon that the Lord will give us a better understanding of the communion service and lead us into a more meaningful participation.
