Trinity Lutheran Church
First Communion

 
At Trinity we want families to be at the center of faith decisions for our youth. When it comes to communion, each family should decide when is the right time for their children to start receiving the sacrament. For some families, this is in early childhood. Other families prefer to wait until the children can take a class. Still others wait until confirmation.
 
Whatever your preference, the Education Committee and church staff recommend 4th grade as a good time to receive instruction on communion. Our communion class, Welcome to the Table, will be offered this fall for 4th Grade students accompanied by at least one parent. The class is designed for those youth who already take communion as well as those who are preparing for their first communion.
 
There will be 2 class options: The first is a Wednesday night option: September 14, 21 and 28 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. each night. This is part of the Wednesday Night Alive program with a free-will offering dinner available from 5:15-6:00. The second option is Sunday afternoon, September 25 from 2:00-5:00 p.m. 
 
On World Communion Sunday, October 2, 2016, at the 10:45 service, we will recognize the youth who have competed the class. Afterwards we will have a brief reception in the fellowship hall where students will receive their certificates. Family and friends are invited to attend.
