Many members in our churches today feel a deep hurt that their grandchildren do not have faith in Jesus and have a deep desire to more effectively share their faith with their grandchildren.
The aim of this study guide is to support grandparents in passing on the faith to their grandchildren.
This study is not exhaustive and it doesn’t offer easy answers to the complex issues of cross generational faith sharing. Rather, it is designed to be a beginning point, a place to begin exploring some of the issues and arriving at some solutions. It is a study for groups recognizing the benefit and necessity for mutual sharing and encouragement.
Study One: ‘God loves my grandchildren even more than I do” (Part 1)
This first study is split into two sessions. It explores God’s love for our grandchildren, for us and for our world.
Study Two: ‘God loves my grandchildren even more than I do” (Part 2)
This study continues the exploration of God’s love for our grandchildren, for us and for our world.
Study Three: ‘Always Learning’
This study helps us to recognize the importance of being life-long learners in Christ. It challenges us to see ourselves growing in new ways which will help us to more effectively the share the faith with our grandchildren.
Study Four: ‘The Grandparents Advantage’
This study looks at the many advantages that are inherent in being a grandparent and the opportunities this special relationship with grandchildren has in sharing faith.
