Additional Details on Stone #1:
For most parents, during the first few hours after birth as they hold that precious new baby in their arms, even the harshest critics of the church are often touched with wonder and mystery at such a miracle. It is said the hardest day in an atheist’s life is when she finds herself profoundly thankful and has no one to thank.
With Stepping Stone 1: Raising a Healthy Baby, young parents spend three weeks together sharing, laughing and growing as they learn about their babies’ physical, emotional and spiritual health…as well as their own, and finishing the course with a group blessing of the babies at the altar in worship. At that time, the church can also invite them into a new parents’ small group fellowship with the people they’ve met through this course.
