CROSS+GEN SEASONALS - FAQs
Q1: Why Stewardship, Advent, and Lent in the context of Cross+Gen ministry?
Trying to shift your congregation’s focus to cross+generational ministry from scratch can seem like an incredibly daunting task. Experience with our members has shown us that exposing cross-generational ministry in “bite-sized chunks”—that is, using programs of limited duration during these key times during the church year—is a very effective way to help congregation members experience for themselves the benefits of cross-generational ministry and “be on the same page.”
Q2: What if we like cross-generational ministry and want to do it for the entire church year?
That is great news and have we got something for you! Check out Bible Song Cross+Gen. It is the result of over twenty years of Faith Inkubators creating, testing, tweaking, listening and redesigning. Bible Song Cross+Gen will help you build a fun and life-giving cross-generational ministry.
Q3: Is there a “home connection” element for Stewardship, Advent, or Lent?
There are reproducible devotions in booklet format for families with small children, elementary-aged children, and teens, and adults. All these devo booklets are based on the FAITH5 nightly faith practice. . All three theme sets also include reproducible bookmarks with Bible verses to read each night at home as a part of this FAITH5 check-in.
Q4: What are the dates of the membership year?
The membership year for all three theme sets (Stewardship, Advent & Lent) runs from September 1 to August 31 of the following year. Each unit is a separate membership
