This two-part Milestone is created specifically for students entering Middle School and their parents/guardians. Part 1 is for the students and consists of a three-week class offered in the Fall explaining the Church and the role teens have in it. Each week covers a different topic: Our Commandments (Love God, Love Others), Our Communion (the Lord’s Supper), and Our Commission (Go Make Disciples). Part 2, for the parents/guardians, is a video seminar (see below) that explains developmental changes and spiritual opportunities in adolescence. 

Milestone 8: The Church 

Discover spiritual, relational, and practical opportunities that exist for you and your teen based on six cognitive changes that take place during adolescence.
