6:35-7:30p | Wednesday, October 2 | Hazel Dell Campus |
Led by Pastor Kathy, this educational event is to help children learn about Holy Communion and prepare them for their first participation in it.
People of all ages are welcome to the Lord's table at Messiah. A child's readiness to receive Holy Communion is left up to the child's parent(s) or guardians. While there is no theological reason to rush a child from the baptismal font to the altar rail, there is also no theological reason to deny a baptized child who indicates that they want to receive the wine and bread with a "believing heart." This forum will help parents think through questions of readiness for their children.
If you would like to attend, please indicate your interest on your Discover Card in worship or by emailing Sally Dost, Messiah's Administrative Assistant, or calling Sally at 360-574-7081.
