Maundy Thursday is celebrated during Holy Week to commemorate the last supper Jesus had with his disciples. It was during this supper that Jesus first offered communion in the form of bread and wine - asking his followers to partake and when they do to remember the sacrifice made.
This First Communion celebration is first offered in the form of a class. It is for anyone wanting to participate in communion, receiving the bread and wine, for the first time. There is no age limit or restriction.
The class is not required to receive communion at Zion, rather, it is an opportunity to learn more about what it is, why we celebrate, and how it changes us. Pastor Derek and Caleb will lead the class and then participants will partake in their first communion during the Maundy Thursday service. Participants in the class will also have the opportunity to serve the congregation during our time of communion.
