Stepping Stone #8: Graduation


What is the purpose of this Stone?

 

• To bless the graduates

• To invite graduates to thank and bless their parents publicly for all that they have done

• To help both youth and parents to look ahead to God’s new calling and direction for their lives


What Sessions are included with this Stone?

 

Three sessions for a fall, winter, and spring brunch with seniors and their parents looking back on the blessings, the gifting, and the calling God is giving them in their future:

Session 1: Blessing My Family
Lead seniors and their parents to look back on the blessings that God has given their family and motivate them to make the most of the time they have together by taking specific action steps to show their gratitude.
Session 2: Gifting My Family
Lead seniors and their parents to look at the gifts that God has given them in their family and motivate them to take specific steps to restore any brokenness in their family relationships in the months before graduation.
Session 3: My Calling & My Family
Lead seniors and their parents to look ahead to the new callings God is giving them and their family after graduation.


Additional Details on Stone #8:

At Faith Inkubators, we believe that turning parents into allies, allies into youth ministers, and congregations into incubators of faith are worthy goals. Martin Luther, himself a parent, taught that Bible, prayer, and catechism were to be taught in the home. The good doctor called parents the Bishops of their family, charged by God to live up to the calling.

This final Stepping Stone brings parents and youth to the altar one more time to repeat the promises to God and confirmation promises, and concludes with parents first blessing their kneeling graduates, and then kneeling to receive a blessing from their child. It is at this time that each parent will know that they have fulfilled their promise to God...their promise to truly be their child’s faith teacher.
