Cross-Generational

 

When was the last time you learned something from a grandparent? A parent? A child?

Bringing all age groups together brings a new sense of learning and how each of us perceive an event. Throughout the year, various cross-generational events are held to connect all ages with fun, faith-building activities. Everyone is invited to enjoy these fun, interactive events!

Milestone Ministry

Milestone Ministry is an intentional ministry that connects households to each other and to the congregation, as we recognize and learn about God’s presence throughout the different stages of a life. Each Milestone reflects our desire to fulfill the promises we, as a congregation and family, made to our children at their baptism:

 

To live with them among God’s faithful people, bring them to the word of God and the holy supper, teach them the Lord’s Prayer, the Creed, and the Ten Commandments, place in their hands the holy scriptures and nurture them in faith and prayer, so that your children may learn to trust God, proclaim Christ through word and deed, care for others and the world God made, and work for justice and peace.

 

Each Milestone includes one or two classes for the child to attend with one or two significant adults, such as a parent, grandparent, or godparent—a time to gather, share, and practice your faith.

 

All households are welcome to participate in Milestone Ministry, including friends and family who are not members at St. John. Check the church calendar for dates and times when each of these classes meet.

Kindergarten ~ Lord’s Prayer     [Oct. 20, 2021 @ 5:30 - 6:00 pm]
