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.

4K: Jesus Storybook Bible Milestone 

Kindergarten: The Lord’s Prayer Milestone

Grade 1: Baptism Milestone

Grade 2: Communion Milestone
Students in grade 2 and their parents are invited to a special time together learning about the Lord’s Supper. Join us as we share great insights, teachings, and tips to help your child grow in their faith. There will be two workshops for parents and kids prior to the celebration: Part 1 on Sunday, September 29 at 10:15–11:00 a.m. in the Fireside Room; Part 2 on Wednesday, October 2 at 6:00–7:15 p.m. in the CLC with dinner provided (and childcare if needed). On Sunday, October 6 please plan to be in worship at Nine as participants receive Communion for the very first time! Email Shelly Lemminger to register.
