WFMW- Explaining Communion to Kids
I’m so glad that this is backwards WFMW because I have a question that I really need some help with. My church takes Communion twice a month and the last Sunday we do it the kids stay in church to participate too (as opposed to going back early for children’s church). My son is starting to ask some questions about what Communion is and I have no idea on how to break it down to something that he can understand (he’s 4 1/2). My belief is that he shouldn’t participate until he has accepted Christ as his savior. I know that a lot of people let their young kids take Communion and that’s fine for them, but for my family I want to wait until they can really understand what it means. I think that it’s sacred and I want my children to know that. Any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
