First Communion Instruction
Fifth Graders and Parents, 

Grace Lutheran Church invites all fifth graders to prepare for celebrating Holy Communion in our faith community. This instruction will help you understand the significance and meaning of this important sacrament in the Lutheran church.

Instruction Session
Sunday, March 4, 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.


This required session for all fifth graders and their parents begins with a lunch provided by the Children, Youth & Families staff. During instruction students will make communion bread to be used for their First Communion celebration, practice communion in the sanctuary, and make their own keepsake to remember this special occasion. Nursery care will be provided BY RESERVATION ONLY; please indicate need on the reservation form.


At least one parent/guardian must attend with their child. A child will not be able to receive Communion without first receiving instruction. Please complete the registration form to confirm your attendance and turn it in to Kathy in the church office by Sun., February 25, 2018.

Students will celebrate their First Communion during the 7:00 p.m. Maundy Thursday worship service on March 29. We encourage families to invite baptismal sponsors to attend the service.
