The final 2020 Expanding Your Ministry Toolbox Course, “Becoming an Intergenerational Church,” led by Stephanie Fritz, will be held on Zoom on Saturday, November 7, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with an hour off for lunch. While the words “intergenerational ministry” may lead us to picturing children and adults working together or youth visiting a nursing home, intergenerational ministry occurs when two or more generations are engaged together, and sometimes – if not often – in our presbytery, those generations are all adults. The focus will be on how we might engage all generations in our churches.
So join us for a day to explore what it means to be an engaged intergenerational community of faith. This is an invitation to explore how we can engage all generations in our churches and to build a foundation that invites those generations that may not be amongst us. This isn’t another program or curriculum to implement, rather a fresh way to look at the abundance your community already has. Expect to come away with a toolbox of resources and a foundational understanding of intergenerational concepts.
Leader Stephanie Fritz is the Associate Coordinator for Christian Formation at the Presbyterian Mission Agency. She served for more than a decade in Denver area churches in a variety of faith formation and mission ministries as a Christian Educator. She currently serves in Louisville as the Associate Coordinator for Christian Formation, where intergenerational ministries is a priority of the office.
The cost for this event is $15 per person. The registration deadline is Thursday, October 22. Materials will be snail mailed to participants in advance, and participants will receive Zoom login information on Wednesday, November 4.
