Options for Intergenerational Ministry
God's World in Community A seven-session, flexible, simple resource for intergenerational gatherings. Short, easy-to-do sessions consist of reading a Scripture passage, doing an activity based on the passage, and praying together. Written for all ages. For use in small or large groups in person, online, or at home.
LIFT (Living in Faith Together) invites all ages to share food, learn, worship, and have fun in small groups around tables. Using 1-2 key leaders to prepare and guide sessions — not teachers for multiple classes — it replaces or supplements traditional Sunday school and provides stand-alone 45-60 minute sessions.
All God's Children: The Church Family Gathers is a series (Lent, Summer, VBS, and Advent/Christmas) for 2 hour gatherings for generations to eat, play, study, and worship together.
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.
