“For as often as ye eat of this bread and drink this cup…”


Do the words in the subject line sound familiar to you?  Here is the entire scripture:

 1 Corinth 11:26 (KLV)  For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come. 

This is part of what we recite during the Lords Supper, or Communion, in church – mostly on the first Sunday of each month – where we partake of the bread and the wine.

Notice I said in church.  Well, the participants at the Spiritual Empowerment Fitness Boot Camp (SEFB) had the Lords Supper, too.  We were outside at the park where we exercise for “life”.   I can tell you that God is doing something awesome within the boot camp.  So I had to blog about this!   The SEFB is not the ordinary boot camp!  No, it is not! We do more than just exercise as you will see when you continue reading.

God is doing an awesome work! 

There were members of the Triedstone Missionary Baptist Church who were to have communion on Wednesday night, June 30,  instead of on the first Sunday of July.   During camp Monday night, two of the campers had the the wonderful idea and asked if the Lords Supper could be held after Wednesday’s camp session.   God is moving.  I checked to see what arrangements could be made.  God is moving.  The arrangements were made and confirmed that the Lord’s Supper would be given at SEFB.

The SEFB is blessed to have ministers, elders and deacons as exercise particpants! 

Wednesday the campers exercised; and they exercised hard!  After camp it was planned to have Lords Supper for 7 people; but God is moving.  There were 14 campers who stayed to participate in the Lords Supper.  And some from different denominations.   What a blessing!   This is a testament that the “church” is not just inside four walls. 

The experience of  that moment we shared was overwhelming!  It was truly a blessing not only to me but to the other campers.    I often tell the campers that we are “set apart”.  We exercise together, we pray together..and now we fellowshipped together by taking the Lords Supper.

I’m sure there may be some people  who may negatively criticize  what we do, but  as long as God is the center, and we do what we do to glorify Him, he will continue to bless!   

Yes, SEFB is more than just exercise.  The camp is unique because people are there getting needs satisfied; emotional, physical and spiritual!  SEFB has a special anointing. Glory to God!

    Glory be to GOD for All the Great things He has done for us! Unique is how I describe our bootcamp. God has given us the opportunity to minister and exercise physically and spiritually. We may be the only Church people see- What message are we sending?
