Communion Instruction


Starting March 3, Elaine Oxenbury is offering a 6-week Communion instruction series during the normal Sunday school class time.  It will be presented as part of the 3rd-5th grade Sunday school class, but is open to all children pre-k and above.  Depending on the ages of the children who will participate (please RSVP to Elaine), the kids may be divided into 2 age groups for either the entire time or just the second half of Sunday school each week.  It will be tailored to the needs of the child and will honor your child’s Communion experience, whether this will be their first time taking Communion or not. It will be a preparation for the celebration of First Communion or a continuation of the exploration of the meaning of why we celebrate this Sacrament.  We will recognize the participants of this class and celebrate with those who will receive their First Communion at the service on April 28 at 10 am. Elaine will be in contact with parents and provide further details. If you have a child who is not in the 3rd-5th grade class, please contact Elaine at oxenburyeg@comcast.net to let her know your desire to have your child join this class.  Children don’t need to be baptized to be in the class, but in order for your child to receive Communion, they will need to be baptized. For more information on being baptized, please contact Rev. Gary.
