Why do Multigenerational?

Patterns of Inter/Multigenerational Experiences

Barriers to Multigenerational Events
11
Response to Barriers
  • We live in a changing world and status quo may
    mean we are trading tradition for relevancy.
  • We may be missing out on possibilities to grow
    the spirit of the congregation.
  • We can learn from the successful experiences of
    our neighbors.
  • Be willing to take a risk.

Imagine Multigenerational Religious Education
  • Re-imagine low attendance Sundays
  • Pageant prep, outreach projects
  • One room schoolhouse
  • Be flexible during holidays
  • Families are stressed, traveling out of town,
    heightened emotional responses.
  • Share a seasonal story among all ages

16
Imagine MultigenerationalWorship
  • Consider multiple learning styles this applies
    to adults as well as children.
  • Invite worship associates of different ages.
  • Invite musicians of different ages.
  • More music, movement, shorter homily
  • Multigenerational choir, band, bell choir.
  • Consider the needs of those for whom the holidays
    are not as joyful.

17
The Key to Inviting and Including All Generations
  • Everything that makes your worship service more
    accessible to children makes the service more
    accessible to adults.
  • From Worship That Works
  • by Wayne Arnason Kathleen Rolenz

18
Pageants To do or not to do?
  • The role of tradition who is the pageant for?
  • Scripted v. simple story telling
  • Performance v. worship
  • Alternatives to a pageant
