We will be holding First Communion classes beginning January 21 during the 10:45 AM worship service. Any children who are baptized and in the 1st-5th grades are invited to attend this 5-week class series. The curriculum we will be using is modeled on the Eucharist format: We Gather (Lesson 1), We Hear and We Respond to the Word of God (Lesson 2), We Offer our Gifts (Lesson 3), We Celebrate (Lesson 4) and We are Sent Out (Lesson 5). Because children learn with all their senses, activities and instruction will be included that engage them throughout each lesson.
The classes will be led by Happy Wilson during the 10:45 am worship service on the following Sundays: Jan. 27, Feb. 10, Feb. 24, and March 3. Fr. Ram will lead lesson 4, We Celebrate, on Feb. 24 after the 10:45 AM worship service. The First Communion service will take place on Sunday, May 19.
The First Communion class schedule is as follows:
- January 27: We Gather, We Hear and We Respond to the Word of God
- February 10: We Offer our Gifts
- February 24: (class will be held after 10:45 service): We Celebrate
- March 3: We are Sent Out
- May 19: First Communion
