At Chisago Lake Lutheran Church children usually partake in the Sacrament of Holy Communion during their 4th grade year.
In order to prepare for First Communion children and their parents attend a one day retreat that will help everyone learn more about the Body and Blood of Christ. Our retreat will end with the children and their parents creating a stole which the children will wear not only for their 1st Communion but also for the Affirmation service. Other activities all children will be involved with is the creation of their chalices which they will create and paint during two consecutive Sunday school classes, and the baking of the bread which will be used for their 1st communion service. Also, all 1st communicants and their parents are invited to a Seder meal given in their honor on the Wednesday evening before Maundy Thursday.
First Communion will be during the Maundy Thursday service at 7:30pm. Practice and pictures will begin at 6:00 pm with a small reception for the 1st communicant prior to service.
If your child is older than 4th grade and wishes to participate in 1st Communion, please call Stacy.
To register for First Communion retreat or to answer any questions, call Stacy.
