When the grandparents in your church think about your church, do they feel like they are truly being engaged as grandparents? Do they feel like they are really being equipped and encouraged to disciple their grandchildren? Do they feel like the opportunities for them at your church are primarily focused on Bible study classes, get-togethers, luncheons and hymn sings and is more of a “Senior Saints” Ministry than it is a Grandparenting Ministry which engages, equips and encourages them to pass their faith to their grandchildren?
A Senior Saints Ministry primarily functions for those who are retired (over the age of 65) and is mostly focused on fellowship. A Grandparenting Ministry focuses on those who are grandparents (the average age a person first becomes a grandparent is 47) and strives to engage, equip and encourage them to pass on a heritage of faith to their grandchildren. Do you see the difference? Does your church truly have a Grandparenting Ministry?
Most churches have ministry to young parents, parents of elementary age children, parents of teens and even possibly parents of college-age children, but once they become grandparents, there tends to be nothing for them until they are old enough to retire – for twenty years or more – and then it is often focused on fellowship, not passing on a heritage of faith to their grandchildren.

However; this is all about to change!
