Milestones bring together parents of children that are the same age/grade for an event every year of a child’s life, from birth to high school graduation. Some of the benefits and goals of these milestones include:
- A wonderful opportunity for families to build new friendships, and to share advice, concerns, and stories about parenting and life.
- Each course has a new theme and provides parents with tools and ideas of how to talk about God in their homes with their children.
- The church will also give a gift to the families who participate in each course which will help strengthen the faith of your children.
The Milestones Program helps equip parents to talk about God with their children! We are looking for adult teams to assist in teaching these Milestones. The date and times for this year are already planned. If you are available and willing to lead one of these milestone sessions, please sign-up on the sheet in the narthex. All of the materials will be provided. If you are interested but still have questions, contact Pastor Justin and he can help clarify and encourage you.
MILESTONE sessions for parents of 3 & 4 year olds will take place on two Sundays, January 29 and February 5 at 9:15 AM in the youth room. On the 29th, we learn why attending Divine Service is so very important in the life of a believer in Jesus including the very young. The following Sunday, February 5th, we will receive practical advice and encouragement on developing ways of discipling our children and having family devotions.
Toolkit: Transgender discussion Q&A style – Come join us on Monday, February 6th at 6:30 pm for a discussion on Transgender. The discussion will take place following the Meals on Monday regarding the trangenderism trend happening throughout America. A Lutheran view of transgenderism will be presented.
High School SENIORS: Prepping for College – On Sunday, May 7th, 2023 at 11:30 am, all high school seniors and their parents will participate in the True U session “The toughest test in college”. Your toughest test is not going to be on paper; it is a test of your heart and mind. Can you live out your convictions and talk about your faith with fellow students and professors who tell you that what you believe is absurd and impractical? This TrueU series and shares stories of students who were tested and stood in opposition to false worldviews. Their experiences will motivate you to define what you believe and why, so you can be confident in your faith.

The movie also brought up how social media tracks what we view/look at and read on Facebook and other sites.
