Spiritual Marker 3
Making The Leap To Adolescence
Fifth - Sixth Grade
Overview: Adolescence is a very pivotal age in the life of a child. Therefore, we want to do everything we, as a church, can to partner with parents in making this transition from childhood to adulthood (known as the period of adolescence) as successful as possible from a spiritual standpoint. Moving toward adolescence should be a time in a family's life where it is taught and modeled what it means to make Jesus Lord of one's life. This is an opportunity for your child to understand what it means to let Jesus be a part of every area of his/her life, not just portions of it, and to truly make his faith his own.
