On Easter Sunday, some of our youngest members took a monumental step in their faith — they celebrated Holy Communion.
Earlier this month, Triumphant Love Lutheran Church held a Communion Instruction course for children and their parents. Pastor Danielle Moore Casey and Deacon Brianna Morris-Brock led the group through a series of engaging and interactive lessons and exercises, from reading and acting out Bible stories explaining the events of Holy Week to actually baking Communion bread (which was later used during Communion in the sanctuary.)
Every year, this course allows our leaders to pass along to our children the meaning of this very sacred practice. It is a seed we can plant into the hearts of our youth — a seed which grows, as their bodies grow, into a lifelong exercise of remembering the sacrifice our Lord made for us all.
