This Week…The Unequipped Grandparent!

The Bridge wants to get involved with you in the great adventure of grandparenting.  What a great time to share our godly wisdom, love, and Christian experience with the next NEXT generation of grandparents!  We want to share ideas, resources, and maybe some time together (post-COVID19) that will help us all be the best grandparents we can be for the kids and for the Lord.

The Four Types of Christian Grandparents

Blocked, Unequipped, Cultural and Biblical

“Watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen…

Teach them to your children and to their children after them.”

Deuteronomy 4:9 (NIV)

This week we’ll look briefly at THE UNEQUIPPED GRANDPARENT.

An Unequipped Grandparent loves Jesus and loves his or her grandchildren, but is unaware of the many tools designed to help them disciple their grandchildren. Choosing to intentionally invest time or resources to be a spiritual influencer may not have even occurred to unequipped grandparents.

There are more resources than ever to help grandparents who want to be intentional about sharing their faith with their grandchildren: apps, conversation starters, games, books — the list goes on. One great resource for a Christian grandparent who wants to move toward intentionality is a grandparenting ministry. Grandparenting ministry groups provide ideas, strategies and encouragement to help build strong family relationships, which is the starting point for investing in a grandchild’s spiritual development.

Sunday, September 13th, is GRANDPARENTS DAY!

Plan ahead to spend time with your grandkids, either in person or virtually.
