Help Families - Including Grandparents - Connect, Build Memories & Have Fun Together!

My church is intentional about holding special events for families . . . carnivals, picnics, pizza parties and even an afternoon at a local garden and sculpture park and a night at the zoo. My husband and I go to these with our son, daughter-in-law and grandsons and one thing I've noticed at these events is how many grandparents were there enjoying them with their grandchildren. Fun is had and memories are made - both excellent things!

What does your church do to provide opportunities for families, including grandparents, to connect, build memories and have fun? Yes, as a church you want to provide opportunities for grandparents to learn how to hand down their faith, but it is also important to provide opportunities for them to connect with their grandchildren in fun ways. This may be as simple as a picnic in the park, VBS which includes the grandparents or as big as a night at the zoo, but whatever you choose, plan at least one time a year to give families, grandparents and children the opportunity to connect, build memories and have fun together!
