Milestones Ministry
Milestones Ministry is a multi-generational tool for faith formation. It helps mark significant events in our lives, from baptism and confirmation to losing your first tooth, getting your first phone, caring for aging parents and retirement. Using a four-step process that includes scripture reading, reflection, prayer and conversation, Milestones helps participants discover how God is present in these important transitions as well as our every day lives.
Since 2016, we marked five milestone moments: Baptism, Easter Egg Hunt and Blessing, Getting a Driver's License and two Mission Trips. At each gathering, we shared a meal together, talked about the significance of the milestone we were celebrating, read and reflected on scripture, blessed and prayed for each other.
