FirstStep and Baptism
Making your child's faith decision meaningful and memorable TOGETHER!
Carmel believes that parents are the primary disciple makers and that making disciples at home should be the most important mission. The First Step class is a part of the strategy to equip parents to lead their child into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ and celebrate the Milestone of Salvation.
First Step is an interactive, 4-week class for children in grades 1-6 and their parents, who are ready to follow Jesus as Savior. This is developed for families to explore and learn together and identify spiritual essentials such as: Who Jesus is, Faith and belief, Biblical Truth, Personal Sin, Repentance, Salvation, Baptism and Communion in a child friendly way.
First Step is a requirement before a child takes their First Step of obedience through baptism/ We strongly recommend any child who has been baptized from a previous church take the First Step class as a new member's class so we all are on the same pages.
First Step is only offered during certain months on Sunday mornings.
To make the class interactive, class size is limited and preregistration is required.
FirstStep is taught by Sean Lee, our CarmelKidz Ministry Director.
We recommend that first graders wait until at least spring of their first grade year to register for the FirstStep Class.
