Save the Date


childrenFamily Communion Service 

Sunday, April 30
12:15 to 1:00 p.m.
Buchanan Chapel

Following the 11:00 a.m. Sunday School hour on Sunday, April 30, we will have a unique opportunity for families to learn about and participate in Communion together! Although this event initially began as a way to reach out to second graders who had Catholic friends or classmates who were taking First Communion, families with children of all ages are invited to participate.

We will be gathering from 12:15 to 1:00 p.m. in Buchanan Chapel, where Pastor Matt will talk about what Communion means in our church and some of the ways in which our understanding is different than other denominations, followed by a time in which families can celebrate Communion together.

Immediately after this service, families are invited across the hall to the Bumpus Room, where we'll have a light meal provided so we can continue our fellowship together.

Sunday, May 1
9:30 and 11:00 a.m.
Meet in Room 4D

Just like we do with our fourth graders, on Sunday, May 1, we will celebrate the faith of our Kindergarten students by giving them a Bible. We'll do this during our Children's Chapel time.

Further details about what this ceremony looks like will be emailed directly to parents of kindergartners, but we wanted to make you all aware of this special milestone for many of our students!
