Intergenerational Obedience

Have group members write letters of appreciation to those of different ages.

Purpose: To help the people in your small group recognize, encourage, and connect with those of other generations in obedience to Scripture.

Scripture reference:Titus 2:1-10

Activity: Provide everyone in the group with pen and paper. Give them these instructions:

  1. Are you an older man or woman? Write a letter to a younger man or woman in your church. Encourage him or her toward godly living and sound doctrine.
  2. Are you a younger man or woman? Write a letter to an older man or woman in your church and thank him or her for the mentoring or leadership you receive.
  3. Are you under someone's authority? Write a note of encouragement to your boss, supervisor, commanding officer, or whomever.
