Congregational Church offers Communion and Bible classes for kids, families
Mattapoisett — Mattapoisett Congregational Church offers Communion and Bible Faith Milestones classes starting Sunday, March 26.
Communion Faith Milestone is offered to children in grades two to six to further explore the Communion sacrament. Through storytelling, symbolism and hands-on activities like breadmaking, art and sign language children with gain a new understanding of the meaning and mystery. Parents are also welcome to attend. Participants will receive a Faith Milestone recognition during the church’s Maundy Thursday Simple Supper. This is not a "First Communion,” for it is a practice as part of the United Church of Christ, that all are welcome at the Lord's Table. The church views it as opportunity to experience the sacrament in a new and engaging way. Pat Goss, UCC church deacon and Patricia Berry, certified UCC christian educator will lead this class on Sunday, March 26, 10:15 a.m.-12:15 p.m.; Wednesday, April 12, 3-5 p.m. Recognition will be Thursday, April 13.
“My Bible” Faith Milestone is offered to children in grades three to six who do not have a Bible. It includes a family potluck Bible class and a recognition. The class will answer the questions: What is the Bible? What does it mean to me? As a family the group will explore these questions and more, in a setting that is meant to be fun and engaging. The class will be April 7, 6:30-8:30 p.m. and children will be presented with their own Bible on Bible Sunday, April 30, 10 a.m. which also includes guest speakers, a special display of Bibles and cake.
