Grandparenting Ministry is to be an open fellowship of Lake Avenue Church grandparents that meets for the following purposes:

  • Equipping grandparents (and “adoptive grandparents”), through Biblical application of God’s design, to pass on a legacy of faith through intentional interaction with parents and grandchildren.
  • Learning to live as intentional Christian grandparents by sharing what we are learning with each other and by fostering small-group fellowships among the grandparents as the need/desire arises.
  • Nurturing life-long supportive relationships. 
  • Praying for ourselves, our adult children and our grandchildren and each other.
