First Communion at Lord of Life
At Lord of Life, instruction for first communion is a part of our confirmation process. Confirmation is the path to a personal confession of faith for youth in grades 6-12. It is a self-paced process for youth to start anytime and complete once they have met the expectations and are ready to be confirmed. On the day of their confirmation, they receive first communion and are welcome to participate in the Lord’s Supper thereafter.
