Beginning School and Going Back to School Milestones

Use these Faith Milestone Events to help kick off the new school year. Faith Milestones Ministry uses special times in a child’s life to acknowledge and affirm God’s presence in their midst. Milestone Moments provide a model for connecting significant occasions in people’s lives with the ongoing journey of faith.

Each Milestone Moment builds on four daily faith practices that are simple, doable, and practical: Caring Conversations, Devotions, Service, and Rituals and Traditions.
