On Thursday, we are going to end our somber and reflective Maundy Thursday service by celebrating the Lord’s Supper together. What elements should you use? In the time of the original Passover and during Jesus’ life, unleavened bread and wine would have been used. We believe that the Lord’s Supper is a memorial, meaning that it is meant to remind us of the death of Jesus Christ for our sin. Therefore, we are not bound to only use unleavened bread and wine in the observance of the Lord’s Supper. As a matter of fact, we use crackers and juice in our gatherings. Our recommendation to you is to use some type of bread that reminds us of Jesus’ body and a crimson colored drink that draws our attention to the blood of Jesus that was shed on the cross.
Perhaps you would like a family activity that will serve as a teaching time for your family. Below is a recipe for unleavened bread. As a family, make this bread and read through Exodus 12 to get an understanding why this was a part of the original Passover and Passover meal. Post pictures on social media of your family making this bread with the #UnleavenedCCC
