Milestone Ministry – special occasions to help families grow in faith.
Baptism: is God’s welcome into the family of God, celebrating God’s grace being showered upon this new child of God. The child & their family are presented with a Faith Chest, crafted by craftspeople and filled with age-appropriate gifts, such as a baptismal candle.
Bibles: Third grade students are presented with a Bible to guide them in their spiritual journey following instruction that includes a family member. Parents and/or grandparents are given the opportunity to highlight their favorite verses for their student’s Bible.
First Communion: Welcome to the Lord’s Table! Fifth grade students, following instruction with a “family” member, receive the celebration of their 1st Communion. This special event is celebrated during Holy Week.
Confirmation: Following a three-year program of experiential learning beginning in the seventh grade, young people are invited to affirm their baptism and are welcomed into fuller participation in the church and world as children of God.
Blessing of Graduates: For those graduating from high school. Parents and students bless one another and the parent(s) present their student with a quilt with their schoolcolors.
