“Milestones” were created as a tool for that very purpose.
Milestones are fun, interactive workshops for kids and their parents to attend together. Milestones were designed to help families and the church celebrate the faith progress of their children, and to provide a tool for church leaders to use as they partner with the parents in the training and instruction of their children. Milestones are designed for use by pastors and Children’s Ministry leaders to implement at their church, but they are also available for parents to adapt to at-home learning.
You will find all the resources you need as a pastor or parent to purchase Milestones below. Check it out! And God bless your family!
