Milestone: Age 3 - Kindergarten

Knowing and Loving God Through Everyday Conversations

What an exciting time of growth for your child! Curiosity, questioning, and pushing boundaries often mark these years. Kids are growing physically, cognitively, and emotionally. It’s also important to help your child to grow spiritually. The Holy Spirit is already at work in the life of your preschooler and you can come alongside the good work He has already begun.

Your faith should also be on display at this time as you nurture your child. While you are continuing to pray for and bless your child, you can also begin to help them know key truths about God. The resources for this Milestone are intended to serve as a springboard for natural conversations about who God is and can be woven into your family routine. 

Church Celebration

Each year before school starts we have a back to school celebration time in service. This is a time for the congregation to reaffirm their promise to encourage you on your journey of raising your child as well as pray specifically for your child's time at school.

Family Celebration

These days of raising young children can be so busy and pass so quickly. We encourage you to take time around the back to school celebration to gather with friends and family, pause and reflect on how faithful God is and celebrate His goodness at work in the life of your preschooler and your family.
