As in the beginning of creation God began the world when it was without form and void, so He now takes us as we are (raw products of grapes and grain) and makes us into something beautiful (bread and cup), into His likeness as we have received Christ as our Lord and Savior.
The grapes and grain represent the communion service. Jesus invites us to His table. The cup speaks to us of Christ's blood shed for us. The bread speaks of Christ's body broken for us. At His table we commune with Him in fellowship with one another.

The predominant color red symbolizes the feeling of love. This love expresses itself in forgiveness one of another, even as Christ has forgiven us.

For every time you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the death of the Lord, until He comes. I Cor. 11:26
