Holy Communion instruction takes place for children at Bethel during the 5th Grade Holy Communion Retreat. Upon the completion of this retreat, children are ready to fully participate in Holy Communion. However, there are families who occasionally seek to have their younger children participate in Holy Communion. This is an option. Families seeking this option are asked to contact the church office to make an appointment for a time of private child friendly instruction on the practice of Holy Communion with one of the pastors.
