Serving: In Community

When people of all ages have opportunities to serve together locally and/or globally—helping others, seeking justice, and sharing God’s love—wonderful things start to happen:

  • Faith is formed as people work side by side in shared experiences, praying together and encouraging each other.

  • All ages recognize that as followers of Jesus they are called by God to serve others and seek justice and that they are equipped by God to serve in ways that are valuable and important.

  • Busy families spend quality time living out their faith together.

  • Relationships are built, generation gaps narrow, and a sense of teamwork is fostered.

Here are some resources for intergenerational service.
