November 11th, 2018
This party is held in November. We celebrate our three year-olds (for those who are there on or before Sept. 1) that will begin to attend Church School and receive a Spark Story Bible, which will help enhance their faith education at home and at church. Children and their parents attend the Bible Pajama Party where they will get to connect with other families, learn about bible stories. The families will also be invited to participate in the Presentation of Bibles at each of our worship service at 10:45am that same day.
4 year old Christmas Story Milestone
This special milestone is for four-year-olds, their parents, and their God parents/Sponsors. Four-year-olds will hear the story of Jesus' birth, sing songs, decorate ornaments, and enjoy refreshments together.
The most important person who influences your child’s faith life is you – their parents. We want to partner with you and equip you as we work together to pass on faith to the next generation. We hope you’ll join us for this time of building connections, learning about passing on the faith, and nurturing faith.

1st graders and their families come together for a prayer milestone. This gave families a time to connect with each other and develop faith practices that can be used at church, home, and in their daily lives. We want to equip parents (and children) with the knowledge of how and when to pray. We hope that all children will learn that they have a direct relationship with God and Jesus through prayer & that prayer becomes a normal part of a family’s daily routine and tradition for passing on faith. After class the 1st graders lead the Lord’s Prayer during worship.
