Becoming Intentionally Intergenerational

Posted by Tracey Daniels at

Rev. Dr. Christian D. Boyd Pastor, Southminster PC (USA), Waukesha, Wisconsin Stated Clerk, Presbytery of Milwaukee PC (USA)         Southminster Presbyterian Church (USA) in Waukesha, Wisconsin, four years ago discerned its core values and practices as a part of its 50-year anniversary and the kickoff of strategic planning.

One Great Idea: Camp Out LOGOS

Posted by Tracey Daniels at

Donelson Presbyterian Church in Nashville, Tennessee launched 26 years of LOGOS with a year-long theme of “Camp Out LOGOS, Getting S’more Jesus.” Their sign-up for children, youth, and parents was held after Sunday worship with lunch—grilled hot dogs, baked beans, chips, and s’mores, of course—served at tables decorated for the theme. Parents completed registration forms and signed the LOGOS covenant and photo release. Payments were made or scholarships were requested. (Church members provide scholarship money as their way to contribute to LOGOS if they are unable to help with staffing.)       LOGOS leaders dressed as camp counselors and...
