Our Local Disciple-Making Team is in the process of developing a comprehensive disciple-making plan for families. Throughout your child’s life, we will recognize specific milestones that are to be celebrated as you disciple your children. Preschool milestones are just the beginning and there is much more to come. We look forward to celebrating many milestones with you and your family in the coming years.
Milestone 1: Parent Commissioning
Parent Commissioning is a time for the church and new parents to commemorate the birth or adoption of a child in a Worship Gathering. We are commissioning parents because we believe they are the primary faith influencers in their child’s life. Brook Hills also believes parents are not in this alone. We, as a church, want to partner with parents to equip and provide you with resources and support as you lead your family. It is also the desire of our entire faith family to pray for and shepherd families and their children.
To participate in Parent Commissioning, you must be a Christ Follower, Church Member, and attend the Parent Commissioning Class. Classes are offered the month prior to your commissioning.
Milestone 2: Parent and Child Celebration - Bible Presentation for Rising First Graders
We all have a story to tell. Our lives are composed of many stories that communicate our past, present, and future. We learn about one another by sharing these stories. As deeper relationships develop we want to learn all that we can about the story of the one who means so much to us. God has a story too and it’s found in the Bible. This is how God reveals Himself to us. God has given us His story so that we can understand Him and know Him. If we want to know God, we will plunge ourselves into His story. If we want our children to know God fully and intimately, we will lead and walk with them as they engage in his Word.
As your children begin this transition from preschool to first grade, we understand that this change marks a time of “growing up” with more physical and spiritual independence. We are excited to celebrate this milestone with you. It is our desire to support you in your role as parents, equipping you with the tools you need to foster a nurturing and Christ-centered environment at home.
