Holy Communion is offered at our Sunday services. We trust that as we receive this Sacrament, Christ is truly present and offers himself to us as we eat and drink. We practice Open Communion in our congregation, which means that all baptized Christians who trust that Christ is present in the Lord’s Supper and have been instructed in the Sacrament are welcome to commune regardless of church or denominational background. Children who are not yet communing are welcome to come to the front for a blessing.
Once a child is in first grade, parents may decide when they believe their son or daughter is ready to attend Communion Instruction and receive their First Communion. Most children come to the Lord’s Table for the first time sometime between first and fifth grade. We trust parents to decide on the age that is most appropriate for their son or daughter. Communion Instruction usually takes place during the season of Lent.
