Milestone Ministry

Passing on the faith from one generation to the next is at the heart of what Peace Lutheran Church is all about. Milestones are one way to bring an awareness of the presence of God to families by pointing out his presence in some key events during our journey of faith.

Milestones have four key components:

  1. Naming the sacred and secular events that shape our identities and give us a sense of belonging to Jesus Christ.
  2. Equipping families to model faith practices within their homes.
  3. Blessing individuals and marking the occasion with a worship celebration.
  4. Gifting a tangible item as a reminder of the event being celebrated and of God’s ongoing love.

Peace Lutheran celebrates the following milestones for children:

Anniversary of Baptism
Entering Sunday School (three-year-olds)
Entering Kindergarten (kindergarten pizza party)
First Communion (second graders)
Third-Grade Bible Presentation
