Why do we call it Holy Communion?

What’s the difference using wafers or bread?

Where is God in Holy Communion?

All these questions and more will be discussed this month as we prepare children for their  rst communion.

Our instruction will take place at two times.

• Wednesday, March 21st at 5:00 p.m or 7:00 p.m.

• Thursday, March 22nd 5:00 p.m.

We will meet with the kids on their own and walk through the meaning and practice of Holy Communion. We will take them on a tour of the sacristy and show them the signi cance and meaning of all the parts of communion preparation. We will then explore the biblical and some of the historical foundations of the sacrament.

All who participate in either session will be invited to Maundy Thursday, March 29th at 7:00 p.m. This is the perfect night for communion as we celebrate the eve of Christ’s Last Supper. There will be a special celebration in the service for the children and a small reception after the service. Please plan on your entire family attending this special service.

Please R.S.V.P. to the church of ce if you are interested in attending the communion instruction classes (414-962-9190 or office@ lakeparklutheran.com). If your child has already been taking communion but has not yet participated in an instruction class, please have them attend.
