First Holy Communion

As Lutherans, we believe the faith God gave to us in Holy Baptism is nourished by the hearing of God’s Word and the receiving of the bread and the wine of Holy Communion. Classes for those preparing to receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion for the first time are held on three Wednesday evenings in September. Instruction is usually for those entering the 7th grade and enrolling in the Level 1 Confirmation Class. Parents are required to accompany their children to these three classes. Students successfully completing the three classes will be eligible to receive Holy Communion for the first time on World Communion Sunday, usually the first weekend in October. Any questions may be directed to Pastor Schaeffer.
