Stepping Stones

There are times when your child “steps” from one developmental stage to the next. As they step forward physically, mentally, emotionally and educationally, our goal is that they step forward spiritually as well.

Each Faith Stepping Stone includes four elements:

Naming: We identify and recognize the event to give it holy significance.   
Equipping: Adults and children (as they are able) learn stories, skills and habits that encourage growth in faith appropriate to the event.
Celebrating: In worship, community and at home through liturgy and time together, the congregation recognizes the new faith stage.
Gifting: The child receives a tangible symbol of the event as a reminder
of its holy significance.
