Milestones of Faith

In every child’s life there are milestones:
…taking those first steps
…the first time a tooth comes out
…the first day of school

There are also milestones in our spiritual life. These are beginning places to a rich and growing faith. Our classes foster faith development in children and their parents and strive to support our church family in keeping the promises made at baptism.

At Crossroads, we have seven different Milestones for children and parents/caregivers to engage in together. Each Milestone is targeted to a specific developmental age group, but any elementary-age child is welcome at any one of our Milestones.

  • 4K: Jesus Storybook Bible Milestone
  • Kindergarten: The Lord’s Prayer Milestone
  • Grade 1: Baptism Milestone
  • Grade 3: Bible Milestone
  • Grade 4: Worship Milestone
  • Grade 5: Stewardship and Service Milestone

Each Milestone is offered once during the year and includes a workshop and a chance for participants to be recognized or participate in Sunday Worship. Dinner is provided to participants and families free of charge before Wednesday night workshops, and childcare for younger siblings age 3 and under is always available during Milestones!
