Quotes to Consider
John Owen on Hebrews 13:11-12: “This sin-offering on the day
of atonement was the principal type of Christ and his
sacrifice, among all the sacrifices of the law.”
Matthew Henry on Hebrews 13:13-15: “Let us go forth
therefore unto him without the camp; go forth from the
ceremonial law, from sin, from the world, from ourselves,
our very bodies ... Let us be willing to bear his reproach,
be willing to be accounted the offscouring of all things,
not worthy to live, not worthy to die a common death. This
was his reproach, and we must submit to it; and we have the
more reason because, whether we go forth from this world to
Christ or no, we must necessarily go forth in a little time
by death; for here we have no continuing city.”
Announcements (subject to God’s will)
After a week of self-examination, confessing members in good
standing are called to partake of the sacrament of the
Lord’s Supper. Your participation in the Lord’s Supper is in
part a witness that you repent of your sins, believe that
Jesus Christ is your righteousness and desire to live a new
and godly life. As this heavenly food can be taken to one’s
judgment (I Cor. 11:28-30) and as the common reception of
this food is a confession of doctrinal unity (Acts 2:42),
the elders supervise the partaking of the sacrament.
Visitors who are members of other denominations must request
permission from the Council.
