*You can use anything kid friendly, we recommend fishy crackers & juice!
Luke 22:19-20And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.”
#1 Teach them that we take Communion to honor the sacrifice that Jesus made on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins. For the early disciples, the time of Passover was a time to remember God’s protection over them. Jesus and His disciples were at the Passover meal together, and Jesus used the cup with wine to represent His blood that would be shed for us and our sins and the bread to represent His body that would be broken for us. His blood and death on the cross for our sins, protects anyone who will love and believe in Him.
#2 Teach them to look inside of their own heart before partaking in communion so that they are certain to hold no unforgiveness towards anyone including themselves. We encourage them to confess their sin and ask God to give them a clean heart before partaking in the bread (fishy crackers) and wine (grape juice).
#3 Teach them that Communion is an intimate part of both worship and fellowship with Christ and His body of believers. We see communion as an opportunity to stay intimately connected with Christ and the significance of His sacrifice on the Cross. Take this opportunity to pray together as a family.
