Faith milestones are opportunities to honor and celebrate children and youth as they grow in faith by marking significant moments along their faith journey.
There are three faith milestones offered for youth at LOPC:
"Affirmations" for 6th Grade Youth
This milestone that recognizes and affirms each child’s unique and wonderful God-given design at an age when youth are asking, “Who am I?” and “Where do I belong?” The program guides parents and other significant adult voices in the child’s life to 1) recognize the student’s unique and wonderful design, 2) affirm the child for who God made them to be, and 3) remind the student of their important role as part of a family and faith community!
"Confirmation" for 8th-12th Grade Youth
This milestone that encourages youth to explore their faith, ask questions in a safe environment, and seek to take ownership over their own faith journey. The program includes a series of classes guided by LOPC staff at the end of which each student can determine if they feel ready to write a statement of faith and dedicate themselves to be a disciple of Christ in Confirmation Sunday worship services. The program is offered annually in the Spring.

"Senior Blessing" for 12th Grade Youth
High school seniors are recognized, affirmed and collectively prayed for during worship services as they prepare to move onto a new chapter in their lives.
