May 2017: Celebrate Children’s Spiritual Milestones
Marking children’s physical “firsts”—from first steps to first words—is an exciting and cherished part of parenting. Even more important and worthy of celebration are spiritual firsts, or faith milestones.
These rites help children know that they’re growing up as Christians and continually reconnecting to their faith family. Milestones also allow churches and parents to partner together to raise up lifelong followers of Jesus.
