Faith Milestones for Families
Throughout the Apostle Paul’s letters in the Bible, the disciple refers to his faith life as a race.
Have you ever ran a road race or attended a marathon to cheer on a friend? On every race track, there are mile-markers (or milestones) that allow the runner to quickly see and know how far along they are in their journey toward the finish line. Depending on the milestone they see, a runner can change their pace, speed up or down based on remaining distance, and push on toward the end goal.
As the runner travels past each mile marker, crowds of people gather to cheer on the runners as they race. Their encouragement provides the energy and support the runners need to reach the finish line.
Using Paul’s language of “running the race” we have developed a series of “faith milestones” for our NextGen Ministry areas. These faith journey milestones act as practical guides for the faith development of our children and students. These markers fuel our parents and church community as they invest in the lives of kids and students across our church.
