This Bread & This Cup is a program for children and their families. The intended age is 6-9 but could also be used with younger children. The Child's Book assumes the child can read, or it is used with a parent who does the reading.
"A colleague of mine says that children are not the future of the church, they are the church of today. This Bread and This Cup honors their full membership in the Body of Christ, and equips us grown ups for the vows we made at their Baptism that we would support them in their life in Christ."
—From the Foreword by The Rev. Paige Blair
