Cross+Generational Ministry

Cross+generational (or intergenerational) ministry is, at its core, the building up of the Body of Christ. What makes it unique is the focus on intentional faith formation where individuals of different ages come together, build relationships, and learn from each other. The central tenet of cross+gen is that everyone, no matter what age, has something to teach, and everyone, no matter what age, has something to learn. Learn more on our What is Cross+Generational Ministry? page.

Three of our six cross+generational products are a part of our Living the Word (Narrative Lectionary) product series, which follows a calendar of Bible readings called the Narrative Lectionary. One follows the Revised Common Lectionary. The fifth product is a curriculum designed to strengthen the confirmation experience by bringing together confirmands, families, and other congregational members. The sixth and newest product, Learning Together, is a set of flexible, independent units on a variety of themes or topics.

Note: Two home-based, intergenerational products, Living the Word: God’s Word @ Home (RCL) and Living the Word: God’s Word @ Home (NL) have been discontinued for the 2022-2023 program year as they were created as an immediate response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As the pandemic has continued, the need for these products, quite popular in 2020-2021, has lessened. The 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 products will remain available for purchase. We will consider continuing this series if there is sufficient interest. To communicate your interest, please let us know on our contact form.
