As I heard this news (the new building is rebuilt and church members are now worshiping in it), I thought about the "state" of Grandparenting Ministry in our churches. In far too many churches across this country (and around the world) Grandparenting Ministry is not supported and when grandparents "collapse", the damage is severe for families. Psalms 78 says when future generations forget and do not know God, they will turn away from Him. It is the God-given "job" for grandparents to hand down the faith, so future generations remember, know and follow God.
Churches need to "rebuild" their "floors" and strengthen their ministry to Grandparents; and we grandparents need to be sure our grandchildren hear about our faithful God from us, so they will remember, know, love and follow Him!
Cathy and I (Lynda) would be honored to help your church put together a plan to engage, equip, empower and encourage grandparents to hand down the faith to their grandchildren (parents, too). Just ask your church to email us and lets see what we are able to do to "rebuild the foundations".
