Faith Formation Blessing Bowl

Faith Formation Blessing Bowl Set 4 (2)

The Faith Formation Blessing Bowl Set includes a beautifully hand-crafted ceramic bowl and six faith practice pottery stones.  The stones represent the faith practices that are the most effective in developing, nurturing, and sustaining life-long faith formation. Faith is formed through relationships, and those relationships engage in fundamental Christian practices. It is through practices that faith becomes life-long and lived out from generation to generation.

This set complements all Milestones Ministry Modules, Moments,  Taking Faith Home bulletin inserts, and Taking Faith Home cards. In addition to the Four Key Faith Practices of Caring Conversations, Devotions, Service, and Rituals and Traditions that are found at the heart of Milestones Ministry resources, we have added the joy of musical expression through music and singing and the personal bonding of sharing mountain-high and valley-low experiences.  The ceramic bowl and stones are individually made, hand-painted, and glazed by Liturgical artist Dawn Deines-Christensen.

What Makes Milestones Ministry Work?

Every congregation does milestones ministry. Baptism, confirmation, weddings, and funerals are all prime examples of life-changing and faith-forming milestones. However, even congregations that acknowledge that they do milestones ministry often miss how to take full advantage of what this vital, twenty-first century ministry has to offer congregations, homes, individuals, and the larger church and society. Here are four helpful strategies embedded in milestones ministry that will maximize your congregation’s effective faith formation and outreach. Paying attention to the following four steps will enrich your milestones ministry in home and congregation.

  1. Make it fully cross-generational
  2. Follow up contact is essential
  3. It’s all about outreach
  4. Make Milestones Ministry a way of life.
