Today was Laura’s first Holy Communion. It was so great to see her experience this for the first time. She, along with four others, received the bread and wine from Pastor Julia and Pastor Peter.
As a gift from the church, Laura received a hymnal with her name engraved on it, a certificate, and a rose. We also made sure to save one of the bulletins from today’s service.
Today was made even more special because Pastor Julia presented the gifts to Laura. This was Pastor Julia’s last First Communion group as she retires next week from service to St. Andrew’s.
I am so happy for our girl today! It was amazing to watch her receive communion for the first time. Moments you never forget.
