Intergenerational Ministry Get Started with Intergenerational Ministry

WHY THE INTERGENERATIONAL CHURCH? 

Intergenerational ministry nurtures Christ-centered community by bringing together two or more generations in planned and purposeful settings, where all are mutually-invested. 

How does your church get started?

GenOn partners with you to assess and explore ways to bring generations together with an emphasis on intergenerational experiences leading to Christ-centered community.  The deep relationships formed through these experiences play an invaluable role in the development of lifelong disciples and in the renewal of energy and vitality in the whole congregation.

All God's Children: The Church Family Gathers

Create intergenerational events for your church with All God's Children: The Church Family Gathers. This curriculum works for small to large churches, with all generations present and with only some generations present. Four units are available: Lent, Advent/Christmas, Summer and The Church Family Gathers for a Very Blessed Summer (VBS).

See how John Calvin Presbyterian Church in Florence, South Carolina used All God's Children: The Church Family Gathers for Lent.

LOGOS

Generations learn and grow in faith together weekly in a program modeled after the early church in Acts 2:42 with time for Bible Study, Recreation/Mission, Worship Arts, and Family Time meal. LOGOS helps develop deep roots within the congregation when parents, grandparents, and other significant adults dedicate time to the ministry. Clergy and other volunteers of all ages from the church also serve, making this an intergenerational, congregational ministry.
