Our Saturday morning instruction takes place in a very special bread-baking class, which is usually held in January. With the help of some of our church’s more talented bakers and several parent-volunteers, our 5th graders make, from scratch, the bread that they will use the next morning in their own First Communion. While they are making their bread--and waiting for it to rise--they learn about the meaning of Communion in small discussion groups with the pastors. They also get to take a much anticipated tour up to the top of the church steeple with Pastor Bill!
First Communion instruction provides a wonderful way for the 5th graders to explore their faith more deeply and to get to know one another much better.
First Communion follows on the next Sunday morning at both the 9:00 and 10:30 services.

Our First Communion Workshop will be on Saturday, January 6, 2024; 8:45-12:15, followed by the First Communion service, on Sunday, January 7; both services.
Deadline to register: Saturday, December 15
