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. Each Milestone is targeted to a specific developmental age group, but any child and parent(s) of elementary age can register for any one of our Milestones. Each class is offered once during the year.

Grade 3: Bible Milestone
Contact Shelly Lemminger to sign up. (Childcare for younger siblings available.)

Children and parents, spend this special time together learning how, why, and when to use the Bible, plus simple Bible background. Join us as we share insights, teachings, and tips to help your child grow in faith. The workshop for children and parents will be Wednesday, November 3, 6:00-7:15 p.m. On Sunday, November 7 during 9:00 a.m. worship, participants will receive their own Bible.
