Communion | Watch Party Activities | Arrow Kids
Updated: Dec 20, 2020
Here are a few simple activities to help your
kiddos learn from the service as you join up to watch it from home.
This week, we will be taking communion during our service. Kids will be working on understanding what communion is and why Jesus told us to use it to remember Him.
I passed on to you what I received from the Lord. On the night the Lord Jesus was handed over to his enemies, he took bread. When he had given thanks, he broke it. He said, “This is my body. It is given for you. Every time you eat it, do it in memory of me.” In the same way, after supper he took the cup. He said, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Every time you drink it, do it in memory of me.” You eat the bread and drink the cup. When you do this, you are announcing the Lord’s death until he comes again.Eat the bread or drink the cup of the Lord in the right way. Don’t do it in a way that isn’t worthy of him. If you do, you will be guilty. You’ll be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord.

For the oldest children, we have a "Communion Thoughts" page. Throughout the service, kids can think about communion. They can examine the meaning of 1 Corinthians 11:23-27 and how Jesus taught us to use communion to remember Him.

For the younger learners, we have an "I'm Listening Up-Communion" page. Throughout the service kids can think about the bread and the cup. Then, you can talk with them about how Jesus died on the cross and rose again to give us new life, and communion is a way that we remember what Jesus has done.

Arrow Kids (1-10yo)
For everyone, gather some washable markers and a wet cloth, wipes, or wet paper towels. During the last supper, Jesus also washed his disciples' feet. 1 Corinthians reminds us to take communion in a way that is worthy of the sacrifice Jesus made. That means, we need to confess to Him any sin in our lives, repent, and turn back to Him. Have children talk to you about those things, and write them on their feet. Then, pray together to confess those things to Him. Wash those things written on their feet off with the clean water and talk about how Jesus has cleaned us of all of our sin because of His death and resurrection. Then, if your child has accepted the gift of Jesus, walk them through taking communion.
