Plymouth Church Milestones Classes
Plymouth Church Milestone classes (formerly known as Stepping Stones) walk families through important stages in faith formation and life. Our Milestone classes will empower people to share life experiences, connect with others who are in a similar stage in life, and grow as a community of faith.
our Milestones classes help us…
- To bring people together through shared experiences, fostering relationships across the congregation
- To offer information about sacraments and aspects of the UCC church as tools for spiritual growth
- To empower members of the congregation and staff to share gifts and knowledge that are helpful and relevant
- To recognize this good work through congregational blessings
Classes are taught by lay leaders, program staff, and Ministers.
