When children grow physically, they reach milestones along the way. They learn to crawl, walk, speak, etc. The same is true when they grow spiritually! There are milestones that children reach that deserve to be celebrated! These milestones include baptism, confirmation, learning to worship, serve and read the Bible as well as high school graduation. 

St. Luke’s is excited to offer opportunities to celebrate faith milestones at the ages of four, kindergarten, second grade, fifth grade, and eighth grade. 

All Milestones are structured for parents (and in some cases children) to attend no more than three sessions to learn how to make faith an integral part of their life at home at that specific life stage. At the end of each session of the classes, parents and children will be invited to participate in a blessing event during a worship service.


Baptism Milestone

Baptism is one very special way God delivers to us the blessings Jesus has won for us! These milestone sessions take place from 9:30 - 11 am on Saturdays throughout the year, and are designed for all ages. Whether you've never been baptized before or if you have been and just can't quite remember why it's important, come learn more about God's gift of baptism and what it means for our daily lives. 

Classes will be held:
