Intergenerational seems to be a buzzword lately for churches. It can easily be set aside as just that, but I do think, that this idea, this mindset cannot be overlooked so quickly (not that we are but I am making a point here).
On the upper left corner of our Youth Ministry Newsletters, you will find this vision statement:
We believe that a healthy youth ministry takes place in congregations that are shaped by grace and committed to preparing God’s people for works of service. All of us, from the oldest to the youngest, are sinners called to come to the cross to find new life in Jesus Christ. All of us, from the oldest to the youngest, are called to mature in that grace our entire lives. Youth ministry flourishes in congregations committed to lifelong faith formation.
A big part of a healthy youth ministry takes place within intergenerational moments.
Within this month's newsletter, you will find a story and resources to help us see those moments come alive.
