You will walk away with a Bible study and discussion questions to guide conversation with grandchildren.
To minister effectively to grandparents in the local church, you don’t necessarily have to create another age- segregated ministry targeting older adults. Perhaps the better solution is to find ways to integrate older adults of the congregation into the existing programs and ministries of the church where the young people are (and vice versa). As “Pastor to Generations”, Wayne Rice helped one congregation move from being an age-segregated church to an intergenerational church. Come and learn from his experience and share ideas of your own on how churches can bring the generations together once again.
