The Communion Workbook is an ideal aid for children in helping them to understand the theological complexity of communion. This Wordbook, designed especially for kids in grades 2-5, is perfect for parents to use with their children-or for Sunday school teachers, Bible Club leaders, children's minstry directors and children's pastors to use with the children in their minstry. It explains the origin of communion in a simple way to ensure that kids comprehend both the significance and the context under which it is performed. The book illustrates the history of communion, how it is done and why. It also explains when a child may go to communion: when their spiritual maturity has reached a point when the experience of communion can be fully appreciated. Activities include a maze, hidden bread and cup activity, coloring page, and secret message. The Children's Wordbook on Communion by Richard Todd is part of a series that is most beneficial when used in conjunction with the other Wordbooks. These Wordbooks are a great tool to accompany any special classes a church may offer for children or families on each of the topics: Salvation, Baptism, Communion, Giving and the Church.
