We celebrate faith milestones in each child’s life beginning with Baptism and going through High School graduation. These Faith Stepping Stones provide a way for Sheridan to partner with parents, step-parents and grandparents in bringing children up in the Christian faith.
All workshops through grade 5 are for parents and children together, include a keepsake craft as well as interactive Prayer Stations related to the topic for parents and children to do together. There is also a child blessing during worship the weekend of the class. If your child missed a workshop in a previous year, they are welcome to participate during this year.
Bible Memory Work
To make the connection at home, each elementary student involved in Sunday School is given the opportunity for some memory work that coordinates with that year’s Faith Stepping Stone.
As Deuteronomy 6:1-9 says, “Never forget these commands that I am giving you today. Teach them to your children. Repeat them when you are at home and when you are away, when you are resting and when you are working…Write them on the doorpost of your houses and on your gates.”
Each family involved in the Faith Stepping Stones classes is encouraged to memorize selected portions of Scripture, the Catechism as well as the Books of the Bible. Studies prove that the earlier children begin to memorize, the longer these truths and facts will stay with them.
