Communicants class is designed to prepare children who are (or will soon be) ten years old for the privileges and responsibilities of full church membership, and for making a public profession of their personal faith in Jesus as Lord and Savior. It is called “communicants” because one result of this step of spiritual growth is to begin partaking in communion. However, the larger picture is the fulfillment of prayers and baptismal promises parents have offered on their child’s behalf coming to fulfillment in God’s regenerating work in their lives.
In communicants class students study the basic doctrines of our faith through exploring the scriptures, completing homework each week, and hearing from several of our church leaders. They gain a greater understanding of who God is, the redemptive work of Christ, the work of the Holy Spirit, the role of the Church, the sacraments, and church membership.
