Milestone Ministries

4 Year-Olds Learn to Pray Milestone

Request a Prayer Pillow here

Prayer is a gift from God. He wants us to bring all our praises and requests to Him any time of the day and in all situations. Morning prayers, mealtime prayers, and anytime prayers are just a few examples of the types of prayers that children can and should offer to our Lord. Teaching young children to pray is both a privilege and responsibility of parents. That is why we are excited to partner with families in order to help them make prayer a comfortable and normal part of the life of your young children. For this milestone, families are invited to view this video of teachers, staff, and families at OSL modeling prayer in different situations. Once your family has watched the video, you can fill out a form to request a prayer pillow and booklet. Prayer Pillows will be available in the church lobby starting Sunday, October 11.

Infant Faith Chest Milestone

The Infant Faith Chest Milestone took place in September of 2020 via a Zoom forum. The purpose of this forum is to walk alongside families as they establish and model faith-filled homes. Deuteronomy 6:6-7 serves as the basis for the establishment of faith routines for families of young children.

God’s word should be prevalent always within the home, and our faith should be something that we both show and tell our children.

If you have an infant or young toddler, and you would like to be a part of this milestone ministry and learn some practical strategies of faith development, view the Zoom video above. Contact Dave Wright, minister of family life, to request an infant faith chest for your child.

4th grade Technology Milestone

We invite all families with 4th graders to a new Our Savior Lutheran Church milestone class – The 4th Grade Technology Milestone.
In this Zoom forum we will be sharing insights about the joys and danger technology offers. We will also spend some time discussing the times and locations that technology is allowed within our homes.
In addition, there will be conversation about cell phone privileges of our kids and cell phone agreements between parents and kids.
Please join us on via Zoom Tuesday, November 17, from 7:00-8:00pm. This class is for parents and students. You do not have to be a member of Our Savior Lutheran Church to join us! This will be a great opportunity for the OSL family life staff and parents to share strategies with each other and celebrate successes in appropriate use of technology within the home.
To request an email invite to this discussion forum or for more information, contact Dave Wright – Minister of Family Life. or call me in the church office at 517-882-8665 ex 105
