Faith Formation Milestones:
MILESTONE #1: BABY DEDICATION
Baby dedication services
are held on the 3rd Sunday of each month during both worship hours. The
service provides parents with an opportunity to dedicate and commit
themselves as Christian parents. Parents are required to attend a one hour
dedication milestone class prior to the service. Please contact Candi Brown
to schedule your dedication service and sign up for the next Dedication
MILESTONE #2: PROMOTION FROM
KINDERGARTEN TO FIRST GRADE
Each May, our kindergarten children
are “promoted” to our older elementary age division. In addition to
participating in a wider variety of children’s ministry programs, this is
also the time they join their parents in worship services. A one-hour
Promotion Milestone class is offered to assist parents during the transition
to the elementary program. In addition to program information, we will offer
resources to help parents and children meaningfully engage together in
worship. Please contact Candi Brown to register for the Promotion Milestone
MILESTONE #3: FOLLOWING JESUS IN BAPTISM
During the early elementary years, children begin to ask questions about
baptism and becoming a Christian. The Baptism Milestone class provides
information on stages of a child’s spiritual development and the key signs
indicating readiness for making this life decision. Guidelines for leading a
child to Christ and practical ways to nurture their relationship with Christ
are offered. Please contact Candi Brown to register for the next Baptism
