Intentional parenting through
life's transitions.


Milestones at Asbury UMC are significant moments in the life journey of a child that offer unique opportunities to create a faith that lasts into adulthood. Asbury is not only committed to teaching, leading, and helping children grow in their faith through these milestones, but we are equally as committed to equipping and resourcing parents to capitalize on these spiritual transitions for their child's benefit as well as their own.

Each milestone listed below has a parent class and church event to mark this special time in the life of our families. The parent classes are designed to educate parents on how to effectively cover key topics that accompany these milestones with their children/teens. The church event provides a great opportunity for the Asbury family to show love and support while celebrating the milestone.  

In the years that fall between Milestones, Asbury offers Family Experiences to help keep parents engaged in creating an ongoing and growing faith in their kids.

How does the program work? How can you get started? Join us for a free Parent Connect workshop, Sunday, October 20 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. in Room 144.
