Holy Communion or the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper is one of the two sacraments we recognize in the Protestant tradition. As a way of teaching about the sacrament of communion, and exploring its meaning and reverence, we invite all children and youth to join us for a special service of worship on Sunday, November 5th, in the Chapel, to celebrate communion with Reverend Sarah Vetter. You are welcome to bring friends; and parents are welcome as to attend as well. This program will be in lieu of Church School, and children will have hands-on opportunity to dive into the richness and mystery of this sacred ritual.
