Communion is a special thing Christians do to remember what Jesus did for them on the cross.

This is Q8L1 in our Explorers curriculum. Download the family guide here: Download Family Guide (pdf)

Key Points:

  • Communion is when Christians eat bread and drink grape juice at church.
  • Jesus invented communion all the way back in the New Testament.
  • In communion, the bread stands for Jesus’ body and the drink stands for his blood.
  • Communion helps us remember that Jesus is the center of it all.

Memory Verse:

Luke 22:19b This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.
