Faith Stepping Stones
Stepping Stones is a transformative program of faith-sharing within in the family that touches hundreds of lives at Plymouth. It provides faith-based parenting education from cradle to graduation through a series of eight short-courses. Each short-course, or Stone, equips parents to nurture both their faith and their children’s faith. One important Stepping Stones goal is for family members to share daily highs and lows every night. Each Stone is celebrated in worship with a special, memorable blessing service.
