Life transitions provide a natural opportunity for marking milestones in the faith formation of our children. At Christ Lutheran Church, we celebrate these milestones throughout the lives of children and young adults to encourage and support the never-ending process of faith formation for all in our community. We do this through our Stepping Stones Ministry.
Stepping Stones Ministry has been at the center of our church for nearly a decade. It is our way of equipping the entire family so parents are prepared throughout the faith journey of their child. We strongly emphasize developmentally appropriate Christian themes, publicly celebrate and bless each child, provide valuable resources for parents and guardians, and call parents back to the promises they made at their child’s baptism.
Each Stepping Stone marks a specific milestone in faith formation. Parents are invited to attend a special class for their child, they are provided resources for that part of the faith journey, and then the entire family is blessed and affirmed during worship and given a gift to mark the Stepping Stone.
If you have questions about the Stepping Stones Ministry at Christ Lutheran Church, please don’t hesitate to contact the church and ask for our Director of Faith Formation, Carrie Jowers.
