Corporate Communion Program
We are in the planning stages for the Corporate Communion program at St. Luke’s Church.
It is open to all children in the 3rd and 4th grades.
Children understand the symbolism and significance of the Eucharist in ways that are often surprising and delightful. It is no wonder that Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me!”
Since the 1991 Prayerbook, our church has lived into the theology that Baptism is full initiation into the Body of Christ, moving away from the idea that Confirmation and “understanding” are the bench marks for participation in the Eucharist.
Corporate Communion is a remarkable communion instruction, not preparation class. It is designed to offer age-appropriate theology, liturgy and tradition to children. Children are not the future of the church; they are the church today. This class honors their full membership in the Body of Christ, and equips us grownups for the vows we made at their Baptism that we would support them in their life in Christ.
Corporate Communion classes at St Luke’s will begin at 9:15am to 10:10am on the following dates in the Blackburn Room on the first floor:
- 4/16 Meet and Greet/Sharing a Meal
- 4/23 Storing Telling
- 4/30 These Holy Things
- 5/7 Church Tour with Father Tim
- 5/14 These Holy Things/ Praying Together/Angel
- 5/20 Rehearsal 11:30-12:30 & Ice Cream Social at St. Luke’s
- 5/21 Corporate Communion Celebration at the 10:15 Service
