Drawing on our church’s strong tradition of intergenerational worship, Milestones aims to foster participation of children and youth in our community. We see faith as a lifelong journey initiated by God, so we celebrate steps of faith with children, youth, and their families.
Research indicates students are leaving church at alarming rates nationwide. Some youth workers have suggested perhaps these youth haven’t sensed they were part of the church to begin with.
Placing meaningful rites of passage front and center in the life of the whole congregation is our church’s response for richer integration in the body of Christ.
