Communion is a meaningful expression of our Christian faith, and our church encourages parents to help their children prepare for it. So how do we know when our kids are old enough to begin partaking of Communion? If you’re asking this question, you and your kids might want to consider joining us for the Family Communion Class. Led by Pastor Kurt Helmcke, it takes place on Sunday, March 29th from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM. Lunch will be included as a part of the class. We will also provide childcare for younger kids if needed.
This class is intended to teach both parents and children about the sacrament of communion, why we do it, who should participate, why it’s important, and more. Parents with children who have committed to following Jesus are welcome to attend, although we recommend it for children in 1st grade and older. Communion is an exciting and important step for all kids on their faith journey and we take seriously our role in helping you and your family prepare for it and learn about it. We offer our Communion Class every other year so even if your child is a bit on the younger side you might want to attend the class just to learn more about Communion.
If you have any questions, email Pastor Kurt Helmcke.
We hope you’ll consider joining us to explore this important sacrament with your kids!
