Stepping Stones

Stepping Stones Program

Stepping Stones is a drop-in program for children ages 2-5 years. This Christ-centered program is intended to show children the love of God in a safe, caring, nurturing environment, helping each child develop to their fullest potential. Children are engaged in hands-on activities that revolve around a theme for the day, and have the opportunity to explore and socialize with peers.

The Stepping Stones program is coordinated by Linda Lowery, Director of Lay Ministries. Please send any inquiries to llowery@umc-cornerstone.org.
