Stepping Stones

THE STEPPING STONES OF OUR YOUTH EDUCATION
Jesus said: "Let the children come to me and do not try to stop them!" Matthew 19:14
 
Stepping Stones of Faith
Step 1
A child’s journey in faith begins with his/her baptism.  Before the baptism occurs, parents will meet with Pastor Doug.  On the day of your child’s baptism, a personalized butterfly will be given to you to be placed on the church banner commemorating the special day. (This butterfly will be sent to your child when he/she turns 3, as he/she begins his/her 1st step in attending Sunday School with friends.)
 
Step 2 
For our youngest believers, there is Baby & Me.  It is a class offered to parents with infants and toddlers through age two. Parents and children stay together.  It meets in the nursery.
 
Step 3
At age 3, your child takes his/her 1st step by attending Sunday School with friends.   It meets in the Room 13.
 
Step 4
Your child reaches another stepping stone as the Holy Scriptures are placed into his/her hands in the 2nd grade.
 
Step 5
During the 4th grade, your child will reach another stepping stone by preparing for and receiving his/her 1st Communion. 
 
Step 6
The start of 7th grade marks the beginning of our Confirmation Program.  It ends with the youth confirming their faith in the spring of their 8th grade year.  They meet on Sunday Mornings, as well as, Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:15.
 
Step 7
Senior High Youth Group.  This group meets on Sundays. They spend their time discussing how life events/challenges relate to what it means to be a Christian in the world today.
 
Step 8
Our young adults who have graduated high school are invited to join the adult education programs offered.
