First Communion Classes

To 2nd graders and parents:

It’s a great thing in the church to welcome our second graders to the Lord ’s Table!  We want our children to experience the same forgiveness and grace as the rest of our assembly.  We are pleased to offer communion classes to these young people!

Here’s the schedule:

March 22  after the 10:00 worship  (for students only)

March 29 after the 10:00 worship (for students and parents)

First Communion:

April 2,  Maundy Thursday, 7:00 pm.

After becoming children of God in the sacrament of Holy Baptism, it’s important to realize that it is in the Sacrament of Holy Communion that they are nourished and sustained.  Holy Communion is a very specific and very direct way through which the children of God are nurtured in the faith.

Welcome to the table, Second Graders!

Yours, Pastor Erik
