Worship at Gloria Dei Saturdays 5:00pm, Sundays 9:00am and 10:30am
As a family, we recognize meaningful and memorable moments in our faith journeys, sometimes based on a child's age/grade, and sometimes as major events happen in a child's life. We take time to think about how God fits in the big moments of our lives.

Individual milestones

Milestones in our everyday lives happen at different times for each of us. Use the 4-Keys  as a family to walk through activities to help recognize God's involvement in each Milestone.
A gift helps to remember this special time spent together.
