With This Bread & This Cup, children will learn about the sacrament of Eucharist while they're having fun! From a guided tour of the church to hands-on time with the elements of communion to unique activities that explore the eucharistic service from The Book of Common Prayer, children will thoroughly enjoy these experiences designed to help them to join more fully with their parish community and the larger communion of saints. The program includes with an interactive Communion Service just for them! 

This full-color, interactive guidebook for children offers:

  • Individual and shared activities
  • Prayers and reflections
  • Explanations and definitions of terms
  • Writing and drawing space for personalizing

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
