The thirteen stories included in this fall quarter, reveal God’s gracious acts. God made a home for God’s creation. God promised a future for people. God blessed all in the family, giving dreams of hope. God saved people from bondage and oppression, providing sustenance and nourishment. God proclaimed a time for rest and restoration. From choosing a leader to sending another person to help, from whispering in the silence to calling all ages and hearing all prayers, God’s mighty acts resound through the ages and into our hearts.
Series DescriptionGrowing 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.
