W

e 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 and include a keepsake craft as well as interactive Prayer Stations related to the topic for parents and children to do together. If your child missed a workshop in a previous year, they are welcome to participate during this year. 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.
