Fourth graders at Grace Church and their parents are invited to participate in a two-part communion instruction retreat at Grace on Friday, March 9, 5:30-9pm, and Saturday, March 10, 9am-noon.  (At least one parent should plan to attend the retreat with the child.) 

Fourth graders who already receive communion are strongly encouraged to attend with their peers, as communion instruction is an important part of our young people's growth in faith.

On Palm Sunday, March 25,  students  will receive Holy Communion during worship services. Also on that Sunday, they will share the story behind their white garment with other Sunday families in a presentation during the 9:45am Education Hour.  The white "garment" is a long wide scarf; students are asked to decorate it with symbols of what's important to them in their lives and their faith. The basic  garment will be supplied at the retreat; decorations are the responsibility of each family. Examples from previous years will be shown on March 9.
