Ask the Question - What About the Grandparents?

When we think about the questions we need to ask on a regular basis about our Children's Ministry, there are definitely several important questions to keep in mind. One you may not think about, but need to, is; what about the grandparents? This question, and it's answer, matters for the following reasons . . . 

  • If the grandchildren are going to grow up and be adults who know, love and walk with God, they need their grandparents to be intentional about handing down confident faith.
  • Families where the grandparents are intentional about Christian grandparenting, are families where the grandchildren are more likely to grow to be adults who love, know and walk with God.
  • It is the job of the grandparents to hand confident faith to their grandchildren - it is the job of the church to build on what the grandparents are doing and to equip and encourage them to fulfill their God-given role with their grandchildren.
Yes, we absolutely want the children in our ministries to learn God's Word at church, but it is essential for the grandparents to be intentional grandparents who are focused upon handing confident faith to their grandchildren. You are able to help them, equip them to be intentional when it comes to handing down confident faith. If you use the Life on the Goldilocks Planet series with the families in your church, not only will you be helping families learn together, but you will be equipping grandparents (and parents) to hand down confident faith! Check out the special offer for churches which makes it easy and affordable to use this with the families in your church at this link

As you regularly evaluate what you are doing in your Children's Ministry, be sure to ask how you what is happening with the grandparents - it matters.
