Faith Milestones

Faith Milestones is an important part of our Children’s Ministry program. Through these age-level milestone events, we partner with parents to learn, grow and then to celebrate these events. Following is a listing of the Faith Milestone Events:

Little Lambs Bible Faith Milestone –  As our youngest learners begin Sunday School, they will receive a Children’s Bible from their parents as a reminder of the baptismal promise of “putting God’s word into the hands of their children.”

First Communion Faith Milestone –  Children ready to receive their first communion, or children ready to learn more about this sacrament, will meet for three weeks along with a parent.  Each week provides opportunities to dig into bible stories, the history of this sacrament, and share stories.  First Communion is celebrated in worship following the three week series.  A reception will be thrown to mark this joyous occasion.

Second Grade Small Catechism / Lord’s Prayer Faith Milestone – Our second graders and their parents are introduced to the Small Cat (children’s version of Luther’s Small Catechism) with a special emphasis on The Lord’s Prayer.

Third Grade “Books of the Bible” Faith Milestone – Our third grade families spend three Sunday morning classes in November walking through the bible, learning a key verse from each book.

Confirmation – Confirmation instruction begins in sixth grade and is held weekly, on Wednesday evenings, as part of our RiSE program. Our sixth, seventh and eighth graders meet from 5:00- 7:30pm.
