This year we are making an intentional effort in sharing with our students everything that comes with our faith journey.  I am excited.  Last week we walked about baptism, the symbolism of baptism and how we are supposed do it out of our obedience to Christ.  We had 12 kids sign-up last week saying that they wanted to be baptized.  So very cool.

Tonight I am teaching on communion, the importance of communion and what it is and what it’s not.  After I teach on it tonight we are going to lead our students in our first ever communion service in our student ministries.  I am excited about this for a couple of reasons.

  • it’s importance that we can understand elements of our faith even at an early age
  • it will be one more way to help our students understand the importance of a healthy walk with Jesus
  • we will be uncovering one of the “mysteries” of Christianity to them
  • God can use it to grow them and make them strong through a better understand of who He is

I am looking forward to tonight.  I will be using 1 Corinthians 11:23-34.  We will not be passing trays…rather we will have some big loaves on the table with a big cup of grape juice.  They will be able to tear a chunk of bread off and dip it into the grape juice.  Obviously beforehand we will be giving them a time to get right with God and with each other.

I am looking forward to what God is going to do tonight.
