Communion Instruction Retreat
Fourth graders and their parents are invited to attend this two-day Communion Retreat, led by Grace's pastors. It's an opportunity to learn about the sacrament of Holy Communion. Children who already receive communion are encouraged to attend the retreat along with their peers.
Friday, March 6, 5:30-8:30pm (Pizza supper included) AND
Saturday, March 7, 9:00-11:00am
At the retreat students create a clay chalice to commemorate this important milestone in their faith life. Students also decorate a white garment with symbols of their life and faith.
Students will receive communion during worship services on Palm Sunday, April 5, and their garments and chalices will be on display during Family Sunday activities in Fellowship Hall at 9:45am. Students will have the opportunity to share their stories with other parents and children.
Please take a few minutes to let us know that you and your child are coming by filling in this form. If you have questions about the retreat, please contact me.
