LIFT (Living in Faith Together) is GenOn's intergenerational gathering resource for Sunday mornings and beyond!
What are the churches that are doing LIFT saying about it?
“LIFT has met a need for our congregation as we seek to grow and reach out. We have people coming who never came to traditional Sunday school, and our teens have opted to stay in LIFT rather than go back to their traditional group.”
“The scriptures chosen for the studies are familiar, yet the study often presented a new way of thinking about the stories.”
“It brings all ages together and offers something for a wide span of ages. It is interactive; it is different and creative each time.”
“Families are spending quality time together. It’s incredible watching them play together.”
“Meaningful and purposeful, reflective and moving, outstanding, creative and fun, amazing, a very new experience.”
“LIFT provided an easy-to-follow curriculum with activities to keep people engaged and doing things they would normally not do (making a rain gauge; discussing scripture with others; praying with a small group of people, etc.). By including the time of fellowship and a meal, this is a great way to build community and involve some who might not otherwise come.”
