Preparing for the Table
by Lisa Updike
Becoming a communing member of your local church is important. Even more important is understanding God’s plan, provisions, and purpose for church membership.
The engaging and interactive lessons in Preparing for the Table are theologically sound, rooted in Scripture and the Westminster Shorter Catechism, and make the essentials of the Christian faith easy to understand and remember for children. Although Preparing for the Table can be used in a class setting, it has been written for children to work independently as well as to interact and discuss with their parents the key questions of faith and the responsibilities of church membership.
