Understanding the sacraments
for children: BAPTISM and COMMUNION
Please pray for this year's class of
Communion Education families meeting now!
This class is offered once a year.
Kids who are at least in 2nd grade with their parents study the sacraments of baptism and the Lord's Supper. In the Presbyterian tradition children that have been taught about the meaning and purpose of the Lord's Supper and who prepare themselves to participate in it are welcome at the table. Join us as we learn about the origins of communion in Passover and the many occasions in which God sustained and nourished His people in the sharing of bread and a covenant of love!
Register Now for Spring 2018. Classes are Wednesdays, March 7-21 from 6:30-8 PM in Heritage Hall with first communion available on the first Sunday after Easter April 8!

-the Book of Order (PCUSA) of the Presbyterian Church regarding children participating in communion expects that they be prepared to understand what communion means and how it is to be faithfully celebrated in but it specifically states in section Worship 3.04 Pg. 96
"The opportunity to eat and drink with Christ is not a right bestowed upon the worthy, but a privilege given to the undeserving who come in faith, repentance, and love. All who come to the table are offered the bread and cup, regardless of their age or understanding. If some of those who come have not yet been baptized, an invitation to baptismal preparation and Baptism should be graciously extended."
