There are two components to this first milestone – a parent class and a family dedication ceremony. This milestone normally occurs for parents who have children between birth and one year of age. Parents attend the Milestone 1 class and learn how to become primary faith trainers for their children and accept that responsibility. Resources and learning opportunities are provided for the new parents desiring to dedicate their child to the Lord. Once parents have attended the Milestone 1 class, an application can be completed to request that a child be dedicated. During the dedication ceremony, parents make a public commitment to raise their child in the ways of the Lord.
