FIRST COMMUNION

First Communion Sunday Instruction: 3/17 | 9-10am

Second Communion Sunday Instruction: 3/24 | 9-10am

First Communion is celebrated on Palm Sunday, 4/14 | 10:30am


All baptized children first grade or older are invited to participate! The children will attend special communion instruction Sundays where they learn that they are coming to the table where Jesus said to his friends, "Whenever you share this bread and cup, I will be with you. Feeding you, loving you, forgiving you." First Communion Instruction will be held in two sessions for both children and parents with a $5 fee per child to cover the cost of material.


Parents and children MUST attend both sessions. Your child must be baptized before they receive First Communion. To register, please contact Tanya Nemcik.

If your child has not been baptized, please contact Jack Easby in the church office at 925-932-1955 to attend a Baptismal meeting prior to instruction.


We can't wait to celebrate this special occasion with your family!

SAINT MATTHEW DAY CAMP

July 8-12

9am-12pm | SMLC Worship Center

Saint Matthew Day Camp is open to any and all kids from age 3 (must be potty-trained) through 5th grade. This year we'll be exploring how, like water, God can transform things, take different forms, and help things grow. Just like tiny seeds in our gardens that change and grow into plants, our faith takes root and grows too! Kids will do activities that include making a garden, making slime, making ice cream, and so much more!

Cost is $50 per child.

SPARK Sundays, our version of Sunday School, is for kids in preschool through 5th grade.  We begin our time in worship with our families at 9:00 a.m.  Then at 9:15, SPARK leaders escort the children from the Worship Center to the classrooms. On the last Sunday of the month, children stay in worship with their families at whichever worship service they choose.  SPARK Sunday activities include games, fellowship, crafts, snacks, music, small group and large group time and lots of fun!  Large group time teaches the weekly Bible lesson through skits and games. During small group, kids discuss the Bible lesson and learn life application through discussion, games and prayer.
