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.
Next Milestone Class:
The next session of the program is for 9th and 10th graders and their parents. They will meet on Sunday, February 2 from noon to 3pm for “Enjoy the Ride!” which focuses on the new experience of driving. Families will look at the significant aspects of accountability and responsibility that come along with a child’s increasing independence. The gift is a key chain (for those car keys!) that serves as a helpful reminder of what is learned at the event. Pastor Justin will lead this session.
