The Sacraments class provides parents and their children with instruction on baptism and communion, and is a great opportunity for parents to talk to their children about their readiness to participate in the sacraments. The class is a series of four sessions, offered once a year in early spring, culminating in the baptism of those wishing it and participation in many of the children’s first Communion with the congregation. These classes are for 3rd through 6th graders and their parents.
In 2014 classes will be held for parents and children over four Sundays: January 12, February 2, March 2 and March 30 at 11:00 am. On these Sundays, participating families should plan to attend worship together at 9:30 am, followed by classes at 11:00 am on the 3rd floor. Class topics for both children and parent classes will include: Grace (Jan 12 – separate classes for parents and children); Signs and Symbols (Feb 2 – combined class for parents and children); Baptism (Mar 2 – separate class); Communion / Meals & Sacrifices (Mar 30 – combine class). It is important for families to attend all sessions.
Baptism will be offered for those children not yet baptized (Date TBA) at the 8:00 am and 9:30 am services. Celebration of The Lord’s Supper (with special recognition of the children) will be held on Sunday, April 6, 2014.
