Talking with your child about The Lord’s Supper

At Western Avenue, we observe the Lord’s Supper every three months. We believe this is an ordinance established by Jesus for his followers and is therefore reserved only for believers. Perhaps, you were in service yesterday with you child and they had questions about the juice and the bread being passed out. Sometimes as a parent, it is difficult to know what to say in times like these. Do not dread these conversations. They are a great opportunity to share the good news of Jesus Christ with you child. We have prepared a simple booklet with come helpful explanations for you to read and talk with your children about the Lord’s Supper and about being a follower of Jesus.

Download it here or pick up a copy in the Worship Center.
