Children’s Faith Milestones

    Children’s Faith Milestones

    In Children’s Ministry at Athens First UMC, it is our honor to celebrate significant milestones as children grow in their faith.

      Baptism | Infants

      Baptism is the first of several faith milestones in our church. A faith milestone is a significant moment of in the faith journey of a child.

        Tell Me the Stories | 3 Years Old

        Our 3-year-old "Tell Me the Stories of Jesus" Milestone is a sweet moment for some of our youngest disciples to begin to feed their excitement for God's Word and stories from the Bible.

          Moving Up | Kindergarten

          We are excited for our Kindergarten age children to move up to the 3rd floor on Promotion Sunday each year.

            Holy Communion | 2nd Grade

            Children in Grade 2 are invited to participate in the Holy Communion Milestone where they will learn about the elements of Holy Communion and its importance in their faith journey.

              Bibles | 3rd Grade

              The Bible Milestone is when children receive their very own Bible from their church family. This special Sunday is held each year in the Fall.
