Let's Learn about the Sacraments Together!
Done in three Saturday sessions in the Fall (as necessary) and in the Winter/Spring, this class uses prayer, games, movie clips, music, computer slides, the catechism, the Bible, and the life experience of adults. Hands on experience with baking and preparing Communion bread as well as a tour of the areas and elements of our sacraments are included. Additional materials including a copy of the lesson plans, supplemental readings and other resources are given to allow the partnership learning-style done in the session to be done at home. At least one parent/caregiver is required to attend each session with their child in order to rehearse in the classroom the kind of conversations that will hopefully take place at home. This is a critical part of the work.
Parents/Families are expected to decide if their child or children are ready to talk about the Sacraments. Each session builds on the next beginning with Baptism. The next session is Communion. The third session combines bread-baking with a tour of the Sacristy and Chancel. The following Sunday our “graduates” assist in worship and experience anew Communion coupled with their learning.
