Growing in Grace and Gratitude embraces children in the grace of God through engagement with the Bible. This children’s curriculum for ages 3–10 explores Bible stories through the lens of grace. Each session contains age-appropriate opportunities for responses of gratitude through claiming, celebrating, praying, and offering. Colorful illustrations accompany each Bible story to engage children visually.

Beginning with the fall 2024 quarter, Growing in Grace and Gratitude will become an undated, quarterly curriculum that continues to provide sessions that follow the liturgical year. By the fall 2026 quarter, there will be three years’ worth of material. At the beginning of each of the three educational years, four quarters of curriculum will be released for each of the age groupings (ages 3–5, 5–7, 8–10, and multiage for ages 5–10). All resources will be available only in a downloadable format.

Once each year is released, it will be available to purchase at any time and can be redownloaded as often as you need once you have made your initial purchase. Each of these years will recycle content from previous years.
