There is no better time to partner with parents than during a milestone occasion like a child’s first Communion. This is a perfect opportunity to teach families about the importance of Communion and celebrate with them as a child begins partaking in this sacrament.
This resource is a one-session, one-hour class designed for kids who are ready to learn and understand the meaning of Communion (we recommend 4th-6th grade). This class includes everything that you need to be able to explain its meaning and process. The Communion Milestone is a class designed for kids and their parents to attend together.
The customizable guides for parents, students, and the teacher allow you to create a class that best fits your ministry context as you help kids explore topics like the history of Communion, the Biblical account of Communion in Matthew 26:17-28, the different ways churches celebrate Communion, a presentation of the gospel and questions to determine if a child is ready for Communion.
This milestone class is one of six possible milestone classes. Find more here.
