Sunday LIFT Advent

Imagine an intergenerational gathering during Advent where all ages enjoy fellowship, fun, Bible study and prayer. Our Sunday LIFT Advent includes 4 sessions. Do one or do them all. LIFT (Living In Faith Together) for Advent has 4 detailed lesson plans, is easy to lead, and is a creative and inspirational way to wait for the birth of Christ.

What does Rev. Ivy Beckwith say about Sunday LIFT?

"Sunday LIFT is a flexible resource that can be used every week, once a month, or at other times in the church year. The format includes time for the generations to eat, play, study the Bible and worship together. Several activity options are included in each session, which adds to the flexibility. A comprehensive how-to guide is included with the curriculum which also explains the benefits of intergenerational ministry.

Churches don’t always take to changes well. And proposing a change that advocates children, youth, and adults learning and worshiping together and building relationships with each other is often met with resistance. Sunday LIFT will allow your church to experiment with intergenerational ministry and bring people along slowly. The ease of use and flexibility helps faith formation practitioners introduce intergenerational ministry without upending other programming and making a long-term commitment to a format."

Rev. Ivy Beckwith, Ph.D. is a freelance consultant who helps churches develop and maintain positive faith formation ministries for children and youth. Author of Postmodern Children’s Ministry, Formational Children’s Ministry and Children’s’ Ministry in the Way of Jesus.
