Bonners Ferry Church Gathers for a New Year's Communion Service
Communion took on a special significance Jan. 4 as Bonners Ferry (Idaho) Church members arrived to find tables placed in the shape of a cross topped with trays of beautiful fresh fruit and breads.
We began by singing hymns accompanied by guitars. After time together eating hot soups and breads, we separated to classrooms for the foot washing service. The glow of peaceful faces in the candlelight reflected the filling of the Holy Spirit in our hearts.
As we took the communion bread and wine we felt united as a church family, facing the New Year with an intense hope for the soon coming of our Savior. Two children passed out handwritten cards with Bible promises. Mine said, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end” Jeremiah 29:11.
