Sunday, November 14, was a special day in the lives of three young ladies and one young man of Martin Luther Lutheran Church.
Pastor Ken gave instruction to Addie Grotrian, Ayla Eggers, Chase Harrifeld and Layla Miller during the month of October in preparation for their First Communion. The Sacrament of Holy Communion was held during the Sunday, November 14th worship service and they were able to partake of the Sacrament for their first time.
Addie is the daughter of Andy and Amber Grotrian; Ayla is the daughter of Derek and Katie Eggers; Chase is the son of Mandy and Scott Harrifeld; and Layla is the daughter of Reed and Tia Miller.
After the four young persons received their first communion, Pastor Tubbesing presented each of them with a Bible.
…the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. ~ 1 Corinthians 11: 23-26
