Bridging the gap between the generations

THEME: "Together We Stand"

The issue of how to bridge “the generation gap” is being dealt with "head on" in Indianapolis at the 7th Annual Generation to Generation Conference at Scott United Methodist Church. The purpose of this inter-generational conference is to build, renew, and restore relationships between the generations. The theme for this year is "Together We Stand."

According to Rev. James C. Anyike, “One of the main reasons many of our churches and businesses are dying is because they have no relationship with younger people, and they don’t have any plans to.” Anyike is the Senior Pastor of Scott UMC and a nationally known author of three books. “Our success as families, churches, businesses, and other institutions will be best realized when the generations can understand each other and work with each other,” said Anyike.

The 7th Generation to Generation (or G2G) Conference will be held August 28-30, 2015 at Scott UMC, located at 2153 Dr. Andrew J. Brown Avenue. The conference includes the G2G Family Feuds Games, an Ice Cream Social,  an Opening Plenary on “Standing When It's Hard to Stand,” a New Generation Awards Luncheon, viewing of the motion picture "Who Can I Run To," an Intergenerational Townhall Meeting on "Our Experiences with the Police,"  an Intergenarational Worship Service,, a Family Resource Display, and Vendors Market. Participants in the G2G Conference include Rev. James C. Anyike, Sherre Bishop, Jamole Callahan, Amanda M. Boyd, Edna Mae Sanders, Kejiana "KJ" Taylor, the Scott Praise Team, Scott Chancel Choir and Scott Children's Choir.
