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.
First Communion class is an introduction to the sacraments of Holy Baptism and the Holy Eucharist. Designed for children 1st – 5th grade, the class is offered in the spring and in the fall, and is taught as a 3 part series. The focus of each class is belonging. Belonging to Christ, belonging to our families, and belonging to our church genericos online xenical family through the sacramental acts of Holy Baptism and the Holy Eucharist. The children explore our St. David’s campus learning a little more about their church home and seeking God in the Holy spaces that abound here; the children also receive instruction on how to receive the communion bread and wine and learn a little more about the traditions of our Episcopal worship.
The class meets on three designated Sundays from 11:15 – 12:15 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 First Communion Sunday.
The Fall class schedule is as follows: October 29, November 5, November 12 and 1st Communion Sunday is on December 3rd at the 9 am service.
