The Gift of Being Grand: Grandparent Discipleship

Grandparents bring unconditional love, faith, and wisdom through the window of life’s experience which helps build a family legacy where children can flourish in life and faith.


Our newly formed Grandparent ministry will provide fellowship and support for our grandparents to minister to their children and grandchildren through example and prayer and make our grandparents disciples and disciple-makers. It truly is a gift to be a grandparent and in the words of Pope Francis, “Grandparents are a treasure…(they have the strength to leave a noble inheritance.” Join us for our morning or evening gatherings and grow with us.


The first evening session is September 26th from 7-8:30pm in Johnson Hall.  Contact Connie Zang,, or sign up online here:


Our morning session will meet for the first time on October 3rd from 9:15-10:45AM. Contact Ann Forgrave,, or  Kathy Hoover,, if you have questions or sign up here online:
