Grandparents Ministry

HELPING GRANDPARENTS REACH AND DISCIPLE THE NEXT GENERATION AND BEYOND FOR CHRIST


  • Meet at HCC the third Thursday evening of each month (September - May)
  • A light meal is provided
  • A theme topic is shared and discussed
  • Prayer for grandchildren is the heart of GPS
     

GPS is a ministry to grandparents for grandchildren. We have a mandate from God to make disciples. It is not only the responsibility of every parent to pass along the Faith of Christ to their children, but is a great opportunity for grandparents to impact the life of their grandchildren for Jesus.


THE BIBLICAL MANDATE:

"We will not hide these thruths from our children; we will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord, about his power and his mighty wonders. For he issued his laws to Jacob; he gave his instructions to Israel. He commanded our ancestors to teach them to their children, so the next generation might know them - even the children not yet born - and they in turn will teach their own children." Psalm 78:4-6


"What can a grandfather give to his grandchildren when he has nothing left to give? The most important thing that you can give to your grandchildren is not money, possessions or even the homestead. The most important thing is a spiritual heritage to guide their life." Elmer Towns

  • Grandchildren are a RECEPTIVE audience for making disciples for Christ
