Fall 2020 Milestones

We know how much Milestones mean to the families of WCC. We will continue to make Milestones a priority this year even if we can’t come together in person. Children/Youth and their parents will pick up materials needed for Milestones at the monthly supply pickup, along with an email that will be sent with some videos for you to watch to have some conversations at home together. Also, we will have a time to gather with other students and parents on Zoom for discussions about the topic. 

These Milestones will happen this Fall.

Kindergarten: Blessing of the Backpacks
Happening September 9 at the Supply Pickup.
All kindergarteners are invited to join us on September 9 for a blessing of the backpacks. Ministers and ministry directors will be ready to bless your kindergartener on this important and sacred occasion as they begin elementary school. After registering you will be given a time slot and will drive up for the blessing! Your child will also receive a backpack cross keychain to keep as a way to remember this special day!

4th Grade Bible Milestone
Happening in October
Calling all 4th graders and parents! This year we will dive deep into the Bible and have fun along the way. This milestone begins in early October (date TBA) with the pick up of your child’s very own Bible with his/her name inscribed, along with a Bible box of activities! In the weeks following we will meet on Zoom to get started each week. Then your family will dive into the lessons from home. We’ll all be posting pictures and videos as we learn and grow in faith on our FlipGrid site! Registration is required. All 4th grade families will be sent details about this in the weeks ahead.

6th Grade: A Time of Change
Happening in October
In October, we will explore some of the mental, emotional, and physical transitions occurring in the life of a 6th grader. This stone will give ample time for parents and students to talk peer-to-peer about the changes they are feeling and experiencing.

9th Grade Transitions Milestone: A Time of Change
Happening in October
The first of this three-session stone is for parents and their 9th graders and will be in October. We will explore the basics of faith. We will challenge parents and students to create space for the students’ faith to become their own. Session one will focus on the basics of the way of Jesus. Session two will focus on what it means to be a part of the UCC, and session three will focus on how to navigate handing the responsibility of faith over to your student.

10th Grade Keys Milestone: A Time For Others
Happening in November
This two-session stone is for parents and their 10th graders. We will explore the keys to the kindom of God. As students are starting to get keys to the family car, it is also time we turn over the keys to the kingdom of God. During these two sessions parents and students together will be on mission with our local mission partners to create change in our world. 

12th Grade Commissioning Milestone: A Time to Send
Happening in November
This two-session stone is for parents and their 12th graders. We will explore the upcoming transitions of leaving the nest. We will discuss topics like: budgets, continued relationship with family, expectations, pressures of college, and how to succeed in your first year post high school. During these two sessions together parents and students will create a family covenant to help navigate this new relationship of parent and adult child.
