MILESTONE MINISTRY… Calvary’s Milestone Ministry is a way of helping families pass on the Christian faith. It is a way to celebrate events in our everyday lives that shape our identity and give us a sense of belonging to the family of Jesus Christ.
In September we will focus on the following groups:
Kindergarten: September 11 – Blessing of the Backpacks: The focus of this Milestone will be on Blessing our Children in their newest journey of Kindergarten. (Please have the children bring their backpacks to the 6:30 pm worship service.) We invite Kindergarten parents to come to their child’s Wednesday School classroom for a time with the pastor to talk about this milestone.
9th Grade: September 18 – Starting High School: The focus of this milestone will be how Faith is Greater than Fear in this new transition in school.
7th Grade: September 25 – Beginning Confirmation: The focus of this milestone is to celebrate the confirmation students as they start their journey, boldly and confidently making promises affirming their baptism and living out their faith at church.
There will also be reserved seating in the Sanctuary for the 6:30 pm worship service (presentation will happen during this time.) Call Kellie Meissner, Family Ministries Coordinator, for more information, 430-9684.
