October 5, 2018 Imagine this scene for a moment. It is Sunday morning and you are about to partake of the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper. The pastors have already prayed the prayer of consecration. They have reminded you of Jesus’ words, “Take and eat this bread… Drink from this...

It Takes a Team
