Kids and Communion

Partaking in communion is a remembrance of what Christ did for us and a celebration of what we receive as a result of His sacrifice.  At King’s Harbor, our communion services are open to all present, including children, who:

• Trust in Jesus Christ alone for the forgiveness of their sins and the fulfillment of all his promises to us (including eternal life)

• Intend to follow Him as Lord and obey His commandments. 

• Understand the significance of communion

• Are able to give a credible profession of faith in Christ

• Consciously intend to follow the Lord in obedience.

There is no test to take or class to attend to help establish their readiness. It is up to parents to decide when their young disciples are ready. Even though we may choose to ask our children to wait for a season to participate in the act of communion, it doesn’t mean that we should wait to teach them about the significance of communion as a part of corporate worship.
