Book

Let's Kill Sunday School (Before it kills the church)
by Dr. Rich Melheim & Friends

$14.99

Description:

What if Sunday mornings at your church always included an optional hour of intentional Cross+Generational worship with children, youth, families and elders gathered in the same sacred space to experience God, engage in deep faith conversations, serve one another, and enjoy life together? What would happen if you were able to carve out prime space in the Sunday schedule for something altogether new - a blending of education and worship (eduworship) in the context of engaging, bonding, strengthening Cross+Gen relationships?

This book contains a dozen case studies by faith formation pioneers from coast to coast. These "movers and shakers and systems breakers" are setting aside prime time for a prime purpose: They are attempting to recreate healthy Cross+Gen environments where the wisdom of the elder and the wonder of the child collide on a weekly basis. They are teaching young and old to connect their stories with God's story. They are unveiling a theme every week at church and returning to it every night in every home. And they're having a blast doing it.

If you are ready to explore designing, testing, and tweaking new faith formation models aimed at engaging parents and kids of the post-Gutenberg, post-television, internet era family, come on in. We've been waiting for you. It's going to be a wild ride back to the future when Deuteronomy 6 ("when you lie down and when you rise") meets Acts 2 ("they met in homes and temple") and the 21st Century non-nuclear faith family.

Let's Kill Sunday School (and Birth the Cross+Gen Movement)
By Dr. Rich Melheim & Friends

$14.99

Description

What started out as a dozen churches gathering to brain-storm more wholistic systems of faith formation for the Millennial generation has grown into a movement across the church. This movement is replacing class with community, programs with process, and the one-way television-era method of teaching age-segregated Sunday schools into a blending of pastoral care, education and worship (eduworship) in the context of engaging, bonding, strengthening Cross+Generational relationships.

Six years into gathering, curating and coaching hundreds of pioneer congregations in Cross+Gen concepts, Faith Inkubators offers this Volume 3 of the series: 12 new case studies by faith formation pioneers. From a tiny 300-year-old East Coast church finding new life to a suburban Chicago church that rented a strip mall and saw 50,000 parents, grandparents and children walk through the doors last year; from a two-point congregational redevelopment site that went from 6 kids to 150 and a national church body in Latvia bringing Christ to families and families to Christ in new, exciting ways, these churches all share a common DNA and a simple vision. The DNA is FAITH5 (share, read, talk, pray, bless). The vision? Life together where the wisdom of the elder and the wonder of the child collide on a weekly basis in the same sacred space at church and in each other’s prayers every night in every home. If you are ready to explore designing new faith formation models that engage all ages and stages of life in joy, discovery and love, come on in. The adjacent possible of Cross+Gen ministry is waiting for you. And it is going to be grand.
