Milestone Events

Discipleship Pathway

Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ. The Bible instructs us to teach children at a very young age the importance of following God and learning right from wrong. We want to come alongside you as a parent to help you on this mission with fun, Bible based educational lessons and fellowship opportunities. 

Milestones are key times in a child’s life to significantly speak into their spiritual development. We offer several milestone events throughout your child's life.

  • Baby Blessing
  • Kindergarten Promotion Parade
  • Bible Workshops
  • Acolyte
  • Created by God
  • Confirmation

Kindergarten Parade

alternate text

Our Kindergarten parade is a way of celebrating our preschoolers rising into elementary school. Our preschoolers are always so excited to join the big kids upstairs. The Sunday prior to public school beginning we gather our rising kindergarteners and their parents, we say a prayer, pass out treats and balloons and parade through the halls to the Elementary Large Group room.

Bible Presentation & Bible Workshop

We invite our 4-year-olds and 2nd graders and their parents to join us one evening in the winter for dinner and a fun interactive program that gives an overview of the Bible and what’s in it. Parents and children will compete in games that will help them develop skills needed to explore their Bibles.

Acolyte Eligible

In 3rd grade children are eligible to participate in our acolyte program.
 Acolytes assist in worship by lighting and extinguishing the altar candles. Jesus said, “I am the light of the world.” Lighting the two candles on the altar represents that Jesus was both a human being and God. Since ancient times, light and fire have reminded people that God is here with us.  When the acolytes bring the light (fire) into the sanctuary, they are reminding people that God is with us in our worship service. When the acolytes extinguish the candles and walk out of the sanctuary with their candle lighters, they are reminding people that when we scatter out into the world, God is with us. All acolytes go through our acolyte training and can serve thru 6th grade.

Created by God

Created by God is a comprehensive, faith-based study of human sexuality for 5th & 6th graders and their parents or guardians. 


We believe that Confirmation is a significant step in the journey of faith. 6th Graders learn basic building blocks of faith as disciples of Jesus Christ and members of the United Methodist Church. Our students spend a year learning what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ and a member of the United Methodist Church. Throughout the year they participate in classes, service opportunities, retreats, and much more.
