Basics of Holy
Communion Class

Students enrolled in 5-6th grade are eligible to be admitted (along with a parent) to a 1st communion course taking place during Lent entitled "The Basics of Holy Communion”.  This course begins with materials online and then a class at church.  This year the class will be held on Sunday, March 18th, from Noon – 2:00 pm at Central Campus in the Fellowship Hall.  The Online work must be completed prior to the class on the 18th.  Those who complete this course will be eligible to take their first Holy Communion at the Maundy Thursday service on March 29th.

 A side note: 7-8th grade students, if they have not already taken this early Communion class, receive instruction in their confirmation classes and receive their first Communion on the day of their Confirmation.

We anticipate that young people from the church will take this course and begin to receive Holy communion at various ages – it is our fervent hope that 5th grade will be the age for some but that others will wait "until they are ready”.  Peer Pressure is to be discouraged here, as we are dealing with a person’s relationship to Jesus Christ. 

• The young person must show evidence of faith, including regular attendance at both worship and Sunday School during the previous two years

• The young person must desire to receive the Body and Blood of Christ. 

• The young person must have the approval of parent(s) and Pastor prior to communion. 

If your child meets the above criteria and desires to be admitted to the course,
please email Pastor Hutton as your youth needs to turn in a registration form by, Sunday, February 25th.
