1Co 11:23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread; 1Co 11:24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, "This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me." 1Co 11:25 In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me." 1Co 11:26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until He comes. 1Co 11:27 Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord. 1Co 11:28 But a man must examine himself, and in so doing he is to eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 1Co 11:29 For he who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself if he does not judge the body rightly. 1Co 11:30 For this reason many among you are weak and sick, and a number sleep. (NASB) Recently I had the honor of leading Communion during our Sunday service. I asked two of our teens to pass out the bread and juice. They are both saved and baptized and growing young men. However, apparently, some in the congregation were not happy about it. I say "apparently" because no one has bothered to voice the issue directly to me....Yes, this speaks to another serious issue that we are addressing soon. Unlike baptism there is a consequence for not taking Communion rightly. We, individually, must examine ourselves. So there is a wrong way to take it and hinges on our understanding as God leads us. It is a serious, but joyous, occasion. That said, I see no reason for it be required that only ordained men can pass out the elements. Nor do I see any age limits. Given how this was done in the historical/cultural context of the first century it is likely that no one passed the elements to each person but rather it was passed around the table person to person.
