First Grade Faith Milestone 2021: Baptism

Touch the Water: Learning about Baptism                                                        

Each year we celebrate Faith Milestones with our children at West End.  Our Faith Milestone program is designed to partner with families to find ways for children and families to grow in faith at church and at home. 

We are excited to invite 1st graders and their parents/guardians to participate in the 1st Grade Milestone on Baptism on February 7!  We celebrate the tradition of helping our 1st graders to learn more about the sacrament of Baptism each year.

We are adjusting our Milestones this year to make them as safe as possible for children and families.  Here is what the Milestone will look like this year: 

  • 1:00-2:30pm Come to the church, enter through the breezeway doors on West End Ave.
  • We will have a series of stations set up in the breezeway and sanctuary for you to work through together (parent(s) and child, not groups). These should take 25-35 minutes total depending on how long you spend at each. 
  • Masks will be required for anyone over the age of 2 and we will stay physically distanced 6ft apart from other households. 
  • Please do not come if you or anyone in your household are feeling sick, running a fever, or have been exposed to covid-19 in the last 2 weeks.
  • We’ll also send home a folder and kit with more ways to talk about Baptism at home. 


Unfortunately, the form is not active at this time.
