Families with children ages 7-10 are invited to our Holy Communion Preparation. If your child has not begun to receive Holy Communion, they are welcome to receive their First Communion after they attend this class. If your child is already receiving Holy Communion, we encourage participation in Holy Communion Preparation in order to deepen their appreciation of God’s gift of Holy Communion.
We begin with a meeting for parents where one of our pastors discusses the content of the Holy Communion preparation with the parents. This is also a good refresher about our Holy Communion theology for the adults so they can discuss Holy Communion as a family after the children’s class. The parent’s meeting is usually held in the evening.
The Saturday morning class for the children ages 7-10 includes:
- story time
- a simplified Passover meal
- craft time where we make a chalice
- tour of the sanctuary
- explanation of our Holy Communion procedures
- Pizza Lunch
