Preparation for Communion

Each September the annual Preparation for Communion Class is held for children whose parents feel that they are ready to participate in the Sacrament of Communion. The children are presented to the Session and to the congregation on Worldwide Communion Sunday, the first Sunday in October. According to the Book of Order: “The invitation to the Lord’s Supper is extended to all who have been baptized…Baptized children who are being nurtured and instructed in the significance of the invitation to the Table and the meaning of their response are invited to receive the Lord’s Supper, recognizing that their understanding of participation will vary according to their maturity.” (W-4.2002)
