5th Grade

Meet selected dates with Ruth Johnson in preparation for first communion.  First Communion will take place during the Maundy Thursday service.  Before the Maundy Thursday service the student and family attend a "Passover" or Seder Meal led by Pastor to highlight the history, connection, and application between the Old and New Testaments.  During this time, Pastor speaks to the students and families about how one should properly prepare themselves for communion.
During and outside of Sunday school, the fifth graders learn how to actively engage and participate in worship through the completion of 15 Service Reports (beginning 2011-2012 year).
