Our next Communion Faith Milestone class will be offered on three Sundays (please attend all three sessions) during the FaithTrek hour (9:30-10:30 AM) on February 18 and 25 and March 3. We will celebrate the Communion Faith Milestone in both worship services on March 17. Any young person interested in taking Communion for the first time should attend this class, and we ask that at least one parent also attend with children. If your child has already been taking Communion but has not yet taken this class, now is a great time!
How do you know if your child is ready for Communion? At First Lutheran, we are not focused on age, but we are focused on faith. In this Sacrament, we trust in God’s promises given, that the meal is “for you” and is given “for the forgiveness of sin”. That means that when children are beginning to trust Christ’s presence for them in the bread and wine and that they are feeling a need to receive forgiveness, it’s a good time to begin taking Communion.
Contact Pastor Erin at email@example.com if you and your child(ren) plan to join us for the Communion Faith Milestone class or if you would like further conversation about your child and Communion.
