Welcome to Milestones! Milestones is our framework to partner with parents and caregivers to create family spaces of connection and interdependence while growing in our understanding of what it means to live as people marked by a life of discipleship to Christ.  In our desire to raise a Jesus-loving generation, what are the ways of being that we are committed to?  We explore these through celebrating key transitions, significant spiritual moments, and life milestones.
