Our annual opportunity for children and young people who have not been prepared for First Communion is coming up this Lent. First Communion instruction is meant to help young people receive Communion when we gather for worship, spending time to talk about the means of God’s grace that come to us at the Table. This learning opportunity is available to children at any age with mutual conversation between the family and Pastor Ed to confirm the child’s readiness. In the past years, children from Kindergarten through 3rd grade have participated in the preparation, though there were others in our church who were within those ages and decided not to participate. Please speak with Pastor Ed if you have questions about whether your child is ready.
Classes will be held from 2:30pm-3:45pm both on Sunday, March 29, 2020 (for children only) and on Sunday, April 5, 2020 (with children and at least one related adult, usually a parent or grandparent). The celebration of First Communion will take place during our Maundy Thursday service on Thursday, April 9, 2020 at 7:00pm, though alternate arrangements can be made for another day if you will be away on that day. Please sign-up by March 22, 2020 so we can prepare!
