While each child’s developmental path is unique, there are common patterns in how children’s understanding of the Lord’s Supper typically unfolds. This two-page resource from Faith Formation Ministries summarizes those patterns from preschool through the teenage years. Download it here for free, or purchase printed copies for a small fee at FaithAliveResources.org.
This resource is useful for pastors, elders, leaders of children and youth, and parents. Consider distributing it to parents in preparation for this year’s World Communion Sunday or giving a copy to those whose children are participating in the Lord’s Supper for the first time.
