Hope at the Fairy Tale Ball

Cinderella and Prince Charming; Belle and the Beast; Elena; they all traveled from their castles to Milestone last Friday, bringing joy and celebrating life. Every year, we host a Fairy Tale Ball for HopeKids. And, every year, we see families experience the comfort of a night set up just for them: families with children who have life-threatening illnesses. At the Ball, the kids can just be kids. It’s hard to worry about anything when you’re dancing with Moana and Maui,…

New Life in the Amazon Jungle

120 people from our Milestone family brought love to the people of Peru while living on a boat, traveling down the Amazon river, and visiting a different village in the Amazon jungle each day. They willingly gave up their comfort for ten days to provide medical and dental care and share the love of Christ through various ministry outreach events. With 1237 salvations recorded, 313 people physically healed, and 1253 patients seen by our medical team, we saw God move…

milestone missions refugee outreach

Reaching people here in our community is core to what we believe God has called us to; our heart is to care for the widow, the orphan, and the foreigner or refugee living alongside us. Jesus told His disciples that the mission of spreading the Gospel would start first in their city, then spread to the surrounding regions, and then to the ends of the earth. For over three years, teams of local missionaries from Milestone Missions, with a heart…

Milestone’s first annual Serve Day was the largest mission effort in our history, as 1,500 volunteers served in over 30 compassion and clean-up projects around our community. Yet behind every repair made, trash bag collected, and basket delivered, the motivation remained the same: reaching people with the love of Jesus. When we care about people the way God cares…

Against All Odds

Working the night shift can be grueling. At the end of hour 12, you’ll find most people with this schedule ready to fall into bed. Not Micah Hayman. You can find him patiently waiting the few hours it takes for school to start so he can meet with an adorably shy 9-year-old we’ll call “J”. Two years ago Micah was matched with “J”, a student at Ridgeview Elementary, through the Milestone Mentoring program. Both of his parents are in prison,…

Compassion In Action

There’s a special kind of joy you get from blessing someone who can’t do anything for you in return. We were created to give–it’s how our hearts are wired. We serve an incredibly generous God and when we give out of our joy we become more like Him. He entrusts us with gifts so we can discover the unspeakable joy that comes from giving as we shine His light to a broken and hurting world. Coach Madis and the Central…

Missions: It’s Not What You Think

The mission is worth it. People matter to God. Generosity transforms. These are things we say a lot at Milestone, but it’s during events like Missions Weekend that we see how they really shape the culture of our church. It’s amazing to see the big picture of what so many people are doing to impact our community and our world. We put together this video to share what has happened in the last year. What we love about this video…
