As we live into our core value of “All Ages, All Growing, All The Time,” we’ve identified nine Mileposts or benchmarks we hope every child will grow into as they become part of the PLCC family. Each Milepost has resources to equip parents, mentors, and the children themselves as they progress on this journey. 

Mileposts is a new discipleship pathway. PLCC promises to partner together with parents during key life development stages of their children, from birth to high school graduation. These nine mileposts will help guide you on your parenting journey. Bringing up kids in faith is not always easy, but we have a plan and that plan is motivated by love of kids and faithfulness to God. 

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Deuteronomy 6:5-7
