On March 15 (from 9—10 a.m. in the Centennial Room), Katie Lancaster and Christine Hides will lead an interactive communion milestone gathering. At this family event we will explore what the Lord’s Supper might mean to you personally and as a family. We especially want families with a second grader to consider signing up for this. Children of all ages are welcome to participate. Please RSVP here, as pastries and juice will be served.
One way to learn about the Lord’s Supper is to experience it. We have an “open table” at Kenilworth Union Church. No matter where we are on life’s journey, children and adults of all ages are invited to take part in the Lord’s Supper every time it happens. It is also meaningful to have a little bit more formal “learning” time about the Lord’s Supper. It can help us experience that small holy meal in a deeper way.
We gather at tables: big and small tables, full and fuller tables, ordinary and stunning tables. Every time we gather, we have a chance to say thank you: thank you God for the people at this table, for the food on this table, for the labor of love it took to make this meal possible, for the sunshine and earth that grew into this meal. One of the special tables Christians gather around is the Lord’s Supper (also called Communion or Eucharist interchangeably). It remembers the last time that Jesus gathered around a table with his disciples. It symbolizes so much, too. It reminds us that Jesus still gathers around tables with us, in a mysterious way.
March 15 is also Minister’s Sunday; communion will be served in chapel that day. Parents are invited to join us in Schmidt Chapel at 11 a.m.
