This article is part of the Family Faith Formation Toolkit - a collection of resources for equipping ministry leaders, parents, and caregivers with family faith practices and resources, brought to you by Faith Formation Ministries.

In the following links you’ll find creative resources and practices for serving to use both in community and at home. These ideas can be seamlessly woven into existing church programs and into family life.

Serving: In Community

When people of all ages have opportunities to serve together locally and/or globally—helping others, seeking justice, and sharing God’s love—wonderful things start to happen:

  • Faith is formed as people work side by side in shared experiences, praying together and encouraging each other.

  • All ages recognize that as followers of Jesus they are called by God to serve others and seek justice and that they are equipped by God to serve in ways that are valuable and important.

  • Busy families spend quality time living out their faith together.

  • Relationships are built, generation gaps narrow, and a sense of teamwork is fostered.

Here are some resources for intergenerational service.

Serving: At Home
