This small-group study is based on the book Holy Communion: Celebrating God With Us by Kenneth M. Loyer. Loyer says “This book explores how celebrating the presence of God With Us through Holy Communion nourishes our souls, refreshes our sense of community, and equips us for mission in Christ’s name. Yet many Christians do not understand Communion or see it only as an empty ritual. Because of that, low worship attendance or enthusiasm commonly accompanies Communion Sundays—leaving churches feeling spiritually depleted. This book provides insights and practical suggestions for giving this sacrament a more prominent role, not just in church life, but in the Christian formation of individuals.”

This small-group study may be led by a trained BeADisciple small-group facilitator. A group rate of $200 for up to 15 participants is available. The course is built based upon the Introduction, four chapters of the book, and special videos by Loyer. Groups may decide to study one chapter per week for five weeks or go through the materials more quickly.

Each participant will need their own copy of the book, Holy Communion: Celebrating God With Us by Kenneth M. Loyer.

Individual Price (when offered by BeADisciple): $30
Group Rate (up to 15 people): $200

The Group Rate is for Congregational Partners and Conference Partners offering this course with their own facilitator. Email to offer this course for your church or conference.
