More practical ideas for connecting the different generations of women:
7. Mother/daughter/other retreat-a mom and daughter plan to go to the retreat together but each girl brings an unchurched friend. It’s a special outreach event that connects the generations.
8. Meals on Heels-a creative take on Meals on Wheels. Younger and older women cook together and freeze meals. When needs arise, they deliver them together.
9. Jewelry party-very simply, the girls wanted to make jewelry and decided on the spur of the moment to invite older women to join them. Several accepted and it was a sweet time of sharing as they made some beautiful jewelry.
