First Holy Communion

Consistent with the E.L.C.A. document, “The Use of the Means of Grace” adopted in 1997 (p. 41, Application 37C), baptized children at Spruce Run Lutheran begin to receive Holy Communion after going over appropriate instructional materials and engaging in mutual conversation with the Pastor and the parents.  We celebrate First Holy Communion around Maundy Thursday.

Children who are baptized and have received Holy Communion from other Lutheran congregations, or other congregations in altar and pulpit fellowship with our Synod, are welcome to receive Holy Communion upon receipt of information attesting to that fact from their prior congregation.
