About this Event

CROSS-GENERATIONAL WORSHIP

By nature, worship is cross-generational. In a cultural context where there are generational disconnects between members of your congregation, how can you plan worship services that are engaging and life-giving for everyone?

Come away with creative ideas to get people sharing with one another across generational divides, strategies to make your church's tradition come alive for younger generations, and a plan for an Edu-worship Pentecost (May 31, 2020)that your entire congregation will remember.

Learning Objectives:• What Works and Why?Go deep with a core understanding of what makes cross-generational ministry meaningful.• What to Do with the Kids and Youth?Learn how to include children and youth in worship in fresh and meaningful ways.• Creative Ideas Your Congregation Will LoveExplore creative storytelling, children’s sermons, liturgical art, and interactive sermons.• Put It All Into PracticeLeave with a complete plan for Pentecost (May 31, 2020).
