First Communion

Dear parents,

The pastoral staff at St. Mark’s wants to help make the reception of the Lord’s Supper a rewarding experience for you and your children. As a means to accomplish this, we would like to invite you to consider attending. Communion Instruction Seminar on Sunday, October 14, 2018 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., in the Worship Center.

The seminar is offered to 6th graders and their parents as well as 7th and 8th graders who have not yet received communion instruction. Interested parents will need to follow the procedure outlined below in order for you and your child to be enrolled in the Communion Instruction process.

  • Complete the application and covenant for Communion Instruction. I strongly encourage at least one parent to attend this seminar with your child so that you will be prepared to answer questions that may follow this teaching.
  • Sign up your child for a 15 minute interview (TBA) after the seminar. A sign-up sheet with appointment times will be available at the seminar. (The pastor will be asking the students questions to determine their understanding of the material covered at the seminar.)
  • Set aside Sunday December 9 (9:15 a.m.), as a special Sunday when your child will receive his/her first communion with your family and others. Following each service, a reception will be in the lobby with cake.

Please submit the applications online, through the mail, dropping them off at the church office, or online. If the office is not open, please drop the application in the white mailbox by the church office door. If you have any questions, you may call me at 314.229.4678.

Serving Him with you,

Pastor Bob Liebmann
