Faith Stepping Stones is a child and parent education that goes from cradle to high school graduation. There are eight steps along the way as we encourage and equip parents to be the primary faith mentors to their kids.
Upcoming & Current Stone Classes:
Stone 1: Raising a Healthy Baby
This is a class where parents of infants will learn about the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of infants. Parents will also be taught the FAITH 5, which includes sharing highs & lows, reading Scripture, talking about how God is working in your lives, praying together, and blessing each other every night in every home. This class will begin on Wednesday, April 19th at 6:30PM in the library and run through Wednesday, May 3rd. Childcare will be provided. Please RSVP to the church office no later then Monday, April 17th. Hope to see you there!
Stone: Graduation (High School Seniors)
Three sessions spread over the fall, winter, and spring where high school seniors and their parents look back God’s blessings, look to the moment, and look to the future of their new callings.

Going through the stones introduces parents and their children to the Faith 5:
One: Share highs and lows – Name something good and something bad you experienced today.
Two: Read a verse or passage from your Bible – Choose a verse covered in Worship, Sunday school, small groups, a devotion, etc. and read it aloud together.
Three: Talk about how the verse or passage relates to your highs and lows. Unpack the verse a bit. What does it mean in your own words?
Four: Pray for one another’s highs and lows, for your family, and for the world. Simply talk to God, thank Jesus for the good, and ask the Holy Spirit for guidance in specific problems.
Five: Bless one another. Trace the sign of the cross on one another’s forehead or palm as a reminder that you belong to God and to one another.
Going through the stones and participating in the Faith 5 every night in the home will help parents and kids build stronger relationship with each other and with God.
