The Home is Church, Too!

Because the home is a place where God’s people dwell and prepare to serve in the larger world, it is a place worthy of the attention and support of local congregations as part of the renewal of the life of the larger church. – Excerpt From the Great Omission to Vibrant Faith The Role of the Home in Renewing the Church by David W. Anderson

The organic church is alive and well in the home and away from home. In Deuteronomy 6:4-9, the people were to remember these words of life and faith through the visible presence of God that was written and placed on their bodies, doorposts, and gates.The home is the place where people dwell, from which they go out and to which they return at the close of the day. The lessons are found in daily life experiences and the instructors are the immediate caregivers with whom children are in contact day in and day out. – Excerpt from Frogs Without Legs Can’t Hear by David W. Anderson and Paul Hill

Home is Church, Too!

 

 

 

 

 

The Heart of Milestones

At the heart of Milestones Ministry are the Four Keys. These Four Key Faith Practices nurture the Christian faith, reach out to the larger world with the love of God in Christ, and bless and strengthen relationships at home and in the congregation. They are:

  1. Caring Conversations: These conversation starters provide meaningful reflection on biblical texts and our daily lives.
  2. Devotions: Being devoted to God’s word serves as the foundation for practicing the  presence of God and blessing you with faith, hope, and love.
  3. Service: Christ tells us to serve others. By living the faith in love, we learn the value and joy of the Christian faith. Faith motivates us to serve the world in love.
  4. Rituals and Traditions: Symbolic actions grounded in the Christian tradition throughout the year provide a beautiful and holistic way of experiencing the grace of God.
