Holy Communion is celebrated weekly at each service and all baptized Christians are welcome.  Children are invited to receive a blessing.  We receive communion at the Altar using the Common Cup or Intinction (dipping the bread into the cup).  If there is a special order for communion, instructions will be provided.  Both wine and grape juice are available.  Gluten-free wafers are available as well.

Children learning about the sacraments

Communion Instruction is geared towards second grade students, but we welcome any child who is ready to receive this sacrament. Instruction consists of one Sunday afternoon class for both students and parents. During our time together students and parents are involved in a variety of activities.

The students will then receive Communion the following Sunday at the 11:00 a.m. service.  In general, first communion classes are offered in May.
