Communion is one of the two sacraments we celebrate as a Presbyterian Church. A sacrament is something we do outwardly that we believe reflects an inward work of grace in our hearts. Our communion table is open to anyone who has placed their faith and trust in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and we celebrate communion the first Sunday of every month.
Communion and Worship Preparation Class for Children
All baptized children, 2nd grade and older, are invited, with their parent’s guidance and determination of readiness, to participate in the sacrament of communion. To help with this preparation and to ensure that children indeed are able to respond “yes” that Jesus is their Savior and Lord, which is the audience the sacrament is intended for, we offer an annual class to help children understand who it is we’re worshiping, what it means to worship, and what the sacraments of baptism and communion represent.
The Presbyterian Church encourages and values the involvement of children in worship and encourages all who are baptized to participate in communion. Children who have not yet been baptized are welcome to attend the workshop but should plan to discuss baptism with Pastor Ralph or Pastor Anita.
The class is designed for children in 2nd through 5th grades, and will meet in Room 290 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Sundays:
February 11th, 18th, 25th. Children will be invited to participate in taking Communion as a class together for the first time, March 4, 2018. Sign up here.
