Milestone Events

Milestone Ministry provides a faith milestone as a marker along life's journey that says, "This is something important and God is here too." It is a faith formation practice for both home and congregation that helps all generations recognize God's presence in everyday life.

Communion Milestone elementary

Communion Milestone Registration 

Sunday, February 19 or Sunday, April 2 / 11:30 a.m. -1:00 p.m.

If your child is expressing an interest in participating more fully in worship, and feels 'left out' of communion, now may be the time to consider attending.

At Bethany we allow families to consider the personal readiness of their children.  Because nobody can use reason or logic to understand the mystery of Christ's presence in, with, and under the bread and wine, this miracle of the sacrament can only be accepted through faith.  We recognize that the faith of a child is completely able to trust that miracle. 

The fall class is held October 23 with communion during worhsip on Ocotber 30. The Communion Milestone will be offered again on Sunday, April 9 with communion during worship n Maundy Thursday, April 13.
