The Communion rotation for preschool – 5th grade runs through October 16.
The rotation objective is to bring understanding to children about the act of Communion and what it represents. At the conclusion of the Passover meal, Jesus broke the bread, as his body was broken, “in memory of me.” He gave them the cup, as his blood was poured out, as “God’s new covenant.” The covenant was the relationship with God through Christ. In using the bread and wine, Jesus gave his followers a special way to Remember Him. The important things the children will learn from this are:
- Remembrance – of Christ’s sacrifice
- Celebration – of the new covenant
- Ritual – the practice of the church that binds us together
Memory verse: Luke 22:19 “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”
Don’t forget to ask your children what they are learning in Carpenter’s Corner. It’s a great way to talk together about our faith!
