Children & Communion
At Orchard we celebrate communion (the Lord’s Supper) on the first Sunday of each month. We encourage parents to talk with your child each month about this very special observance. Jesus commanded his followers to remember and celebrate his great love for us by participating in this unusual meal, following the example he set when he ate with his disciples. Communion reminds us that Jesus died so that we might be forgiven. The bread represents Jesus’ body and the juice or wine represents his blood which he shed. Participating in communion with people who are also thinking about what Jesus did for us brings us closer to God and to other followers of Jesus.
