"Milestone 9: The Story" begins this March!

Jan 7, 2019

Milestones is Highrock's curriculum for raising a Jesus-loving generation! "The Story" is a 10-week class to prepare high school students for Confirmation or Baptism. We will walk through the Story of God starting with creation and moving all the way through history to the modern day church. Students will interact with sponsors and their parents/guardians throughout the class as they prepare for the final ceremony. 

If you’d like to learn more or participate in the class, contact Mary at mary@highrockacton.org by March 1st.

It will take place Sundays after church in the winter/spring from 11:45am to 1pm at the Church Ministry Center (562 Mass Ave., West Acton). Lunch will be provided some weeks. The class looks forward to Milestones Sunday on June 2nd where we celebrate teen baptism and confirmation.
