Intergenerational Ministry Discussion

Intergenerational Ministry Discussion
facilitated by Bonnie Deroski

Sunday, March 28, 7:30 – 8:30pm
via zoom

As you may know, intergenerational ministry is an emphasis that is near and dear to my heart and I believe also to God’s vision for the church. I would like to invite you into a multi-generational, guided discussion about the ways in which Grace is incorporating all ages into these four areas of the life of the church.

  1. The church’s ministry is based upon a strong foundation of healthy Christ-centered relationships among people of all ages.
    • People of all generations feel valued and important in the life of the congregation.
    • Congregation-wide policies with clear rules and boundaries exist to protect and empower people of all ages.
    • Experiences include purposeful opportunities to form healthy friendships guided by Christ’s example, promoting respect for all.
  2. People of all ages are committed to faith formation and growing in their relationship to God through Jesus Christ.
    • Adults and young people have multiple opportunities to engage in Christian nurture on a regular basis.
    • Opportunities for spiritual growth are led by mature Christian adults who are called to lead.
    • Leaders seek out ways to demonstrate the foundational principle for effective ministry that relationships are everything to God.
  3. The church is dedicated to all ages worshipping together.
    • Children and youth are an essential part of the worshipping congregation.
    • Worship leadership seeks ways to engage all ages.
    • Those who plan worship for the congregation find ways to incorporate the gifts and talents of young and old, as appropriate for age and stage.
  4. The church places a high priority on intergenerational mission and service.
    • All ages in service together reflect the true nature of the church in ministry.
    • Leadership seeks out projects that promote reconciliation and healing in a variety of settings and are appropriate for multiple ages of participants working together.

The event is finished.
