5th Grade 1st Communion

This important milestone helps kids to understand and appreciate the sacrament of Holy Communion. On Maundy Thursday of Holy Week, 5th graders learn about the last supper that Jesus ate with his disciples on the night before he was crucified. During the meal Jesus told his disciples to keep on celebrating the Lord’s Supper until he comes again.We have a family style meal in Celebration Hall before students and their families attend worship and receive their First Communion. Kids and parents attend training the Sunday before where they also make their own bread and chalices.
