Cross Generational Ministries is part of faith formation across generations that utilizes intentionality to  specifically focus on building life-giving relationships between members of different generations.

While you will still see things like Children and Families Ministry, Cross Generational Ministries will be incorporated into some of these events as well as have events all their own.  Children ministries will be geared toward children’s faith development, Family Ministries will have a focus on parents/grandparents (or other primary caregivers) to children and youth but is NOT exclusionary.  Cross Generational Ministry will encompass relationship building with both the familial and church family relationships across generations.

As parents of middle schoolers and elementary age children ourselves, ShaShawna and I see and know the benefit of these intergenerational relationships not only for our children, but for our family and ourselves as individuals wearing the multitude of hats that so many adults wear.

So, be on the lookout for more information and events that encompass intentional, cross generational learning, loving, and living!
