Dr. Rich Melheim, founder of Faith Inkubators, talks about Cross+Gen Lent.

Weeks 1 and 2
He Comes to Challenge

“If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it. For what will it profit them to gain the whole world and forfeit their life?”
Mark 8:34-36

Weeks 3 and 4
He Comes to Confront

“Indeed, God did not send the Son into
the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.”
John 3:17

Weeks 5 and 6
He Comes to Die

“Even though I must die with you,
I will not deny you.”
Mark 14:31


Cross+Gen Lent provides an opportunity for all the ages to meet together and discover Christ’s ultimate life giving sacrifice. Cross+Gen Lent is lectionary-based, interpreting Scripture each week through the arts and music, and includes a home connection with FAITH5.

Here’s what you get with your digital download:

Six PowerPoint® Presentations: Customize your presentation to fit your church’s needs choosing from several Images & Analogies™; brain-based teaching options to help each participant grasp key concepts, no matter what age and stage they are in. Add engaging options including– original cartoons, karaoke music videos, and learning games. Customize for your church using the prayer, communion, and theme Bible verse slides.

Skits: Each of the three theme includes three skit options to present the theme in an engaging way. Use children, parents, youth and adults, or even puppets to present the skits!

Bible Verse Songs: An NRSV Scripture passage forms the core of each theme. By turning the Scripture passage into a memorable song, your Bible becomes both a text book and a hymn book. This Scripture verbatim song is provided in a karaoke style video in your PowerPoint Presentations, in addition to sheet music you can print out for a live option.

FAITH5 Devotions and Bookmarks: Printable take-home devotion booklets and bookmarks are provided, helping every home to connect for a few minutes every night via the FAITH5 nightly ritual:

5. BLESS one another

Leader’s Guide: This document contains all of the planning/presenting information you will need, including FAITH5 small group handouts, skits, and coloring sheets. Print it for your planning team and use it as you customize the PowerPoint Presentations.

Sermon Aids: Consider tying all of worship and education together around these sermon aids for a truly holistic Lent experience!
