The fall curriculum quarter is officially underway as churches are experiencing Growing in Grace & Gratitude, the new PC(USA) denominational children’s curriculum.

Sessions of the fall quarter began Sunday, September 6. The first session “God Saw How Good It Was” revealed the grace of God and our gracious response in the creation story, based on Genesis 1:1–2:3.

Feedback from Christian educators is positive:

“We started a new year with Growing in Grace & Gratitude and it is wonderful!”
“I'm so excited about recruiting storytellers to come and share the Bible story! Keeps the energy up on the component I most want them to remember—the Bible!
“This is Presbyterian curriculum? But it’s not boring!”

Growing in Grace & Gratitude is a quarterly curriculum that will help transform the lives of children and those who love them, shaped by grace and gratitude. Through fun, age-appropriate activities, prayer, and singing, children and their leaders will celebrate the presence of God’s grace in their lives.

The curriculum offers a quarterly e-book for families to use at home. The e-book shares the same colorful illustrations and Bible stories used in weekly sessions. It includes audio readings of the Bible stories and Grace Sightings—age-appropriate activities for children to do at home with their families. Download the e-book free at growinggracegratitude.org.

Available in English or Spanish (Crecemos en gracia y gratitude); learn more about the curriculum at growinggracegratitude.org. Order at pcusastore.com.
