Leader’s guide includes weekly session plans, resource pages, and colorful, helpful tips for teachers. Biblical background information helps your leader feel confident teaching the stories of the Bible with children. Also included in the leader’s guide are supply lists, extra activities, and suggestions for adapting activities for children with special needs.
Living as God’s people isn’t always easy, but we have stories in the Bible of people who have tried their best to follow God’s ways. Hear the story of Noah who was chosen for his faithfulness. Explore the story of Abraham, Sarah and their family. Learn about Miriam Moses’ sister, Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz, the shepherd boy David, Abigail, the prophets Elisha and Micah.
Growing in Grace & Gratitude is our quarterly denominational curriculum for children ages 3–10. Children see God’s grace in the biblical narrative and in our world today. The curriculum provides age appropriate opportunities for responses of gratitude through claiming, celebrating, praying and offering. There is diversity in learning as well as support for leaders to adapt lessons for children with special needs. Coloring illustrations accompany each Bible story to engage children visually. Each session will embrace children in the grace of God through engagement with the Bible that echoes reformed worship: gathering in God’s grace, responding in gratitude, and loving and serving God.
