Yes, your kids can take communion if they’ve given their life to Christ and you feel they’re ready. If you’re unsure whether communion is appropriate for your child, consider these questions:
- Has my child confessed faith in Jesus?
- Do they know what sin is and how to repent?
- Do their actions show evidence they want to follow Jesus?
- Do they understand why we take communion?
We recommend reading Luke 22 and 1 Corinthians 11:26 together to understand the symbolic meaning and instructions for communion.
Keep in mind, communion doesn’t just happen at church. You can take it together during service or around the dinner table at home. Whatever you choose, we encourage you to establish a weekly rhythm of communion with your family.
