Milestone Ministry

milestone ministry milestones list 1

Milestone Ministry is the way in which we as a community celebrate and mark meaningful, memorable moments in our faith journey. Through Milestone Ministry, we honor the promises made in baptism, provide learning opportunities for families, and recommit ourselves as a congregation to nurture one another as the Body of Christ. Milestone Ministry begins with baptism and continues at different stages throughout our lives.

Milestones are marked by:

  • Blessing during worship

    All those who are celebrating a milestone together
    receive a blessing in worship with the entire faith



  • Learning and fellowship time

    milestone ministry learning and fellowship time bulletRecognizing the importance of parents in nurturing
    their child's faith, milestones celebrated during
    school years also include a family learning time.
    This time also provides an opportunity for those
    experiencing milestones together to build relationships
    and share their journeys with each other.

Milestones include:
