Holy Communion Class - stay tuned for Fall 2021 class date!
In the Episcopal tradition, all baptized persons are invited to receive communion. This includes children, too. Parents in conversation with their child determine the best time for their child to receive. Many children receive the bread as soon as they are old enough to hold it. However, some families choose to have their children wait to receive until the child is a bit older.
St. David’s Holy Communion class is an engaging and interactive class, designed for children kindergarten-5th grade to learn about the sacraments of Holy Baptism and the Holy Eucharist. The focus of each class is belonging. Belonging to Christ, belonging to our families, and belonging to our church family through the gift of water and God’s Holy Spirit at Baptism and in communion, the coming together, for the shared meal of bread and wine for the Holy Eucharist. During the class, the children and leaders explore St. David’s campus learning about our church home as we seek God in the Holy spaces that abound here. The children learn about Jesus’ baptism and share photos of their own baptism and receive instruction on how to receive the communion bread and wine as they learn about the traditions of our Episcopal worship.
The class meets on three designated Sundays from 11:15 – 12:30 downstairs in Jeffords Fellowship Hall in the Grace classroom. Once the class is complete the children receive a special recognition during 9:00 worship on Holy Communion Sunday.
