First Communion Class

Prepare for Your First Communion

In the spring before Holy Week, Hope offers a class for children and their parents taught by a Hope pastor about the history and traditions of Holy Communion. Children take the class at an age when parents feel their child can understand the significance of this very special faith milestone. Partaking in the Lord’s Supper, or Eucharist meal, students receive special recognition of their first communion during the Maundy Thursday services on the Thursday before Easter. Once students take the class, they can take communion at any service when it is offered.
