Generations Together

Generations Together

Faith is transmitted from generation to generation in extended families and intergenerational congregations. Every congregation can discover its intergenerational heart and soul, and become a community that nurtures all ages and stages of faith. Through generations Caring/ Praying/ Learning/ Celebrating/ and Serving Faithfully together we become more than any generation could be alone to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today. Generations Together guides leaders in learning what this vision looks like in practice and how to guide a congregation in envisioning and designing projects and initiatives to become more intentionally intergenerational.
