What is Generations of Grace?
We are so excited to start up this excellent series with the children of CBC during our 9 AM Discipleship Hour! Please keep reading for more information about this excellent teaching curriculum for our little ones!
Generations of Grace is a biblically based, affordable, unified curriculum for children ages three to twelve designed to be used in multiple settings for the purpose of edifying teachers, evangelizing children and encouraging families.
This unique curriculum is:
- Biblically Driven—covering the Old Testament historical books, the life of Christ, the birth and growth of the church, and lessons from the book of Revelation.
- God-Centered—magnifying God by studying His character in the pages of Scripture.
- Christ Exalting—glorifying Christ as the pinnacle of God’s redemptive plan
- Gospel Saturated—pointing children to Christ as the only way of salvation
- Family Focused—uniting the family around the same passage of Scripture each Sunday and throughout the week
Generations of Grace is designed to magnify God by studying His character in the pages of Scripture. We can better understand who He is and how we are to respond to Him by studying how His redemptive plan has unfolded and how He has used men to accomplish His purposes. Over a three-year period, this curriculum covers the entire narrative of God’s redemptive plan.
Year 1 teaches the narrative of the Bible from Genesis 1 through Numbers.
Year 2 teaches the narrative of the Bible from Deuteronomy through Nehemiah.
Year 3 teaches the narrative of the Bible from the Life of Christ through Revelation 22.
Generations of Grace is broken down into three levels:
- Grades 1-3;
- Grades 4-6.
Over the nine-year period a child spends between three years old and sixth grade, Generations of Grace will lead that child through God’s redemptive plan three times, each at a deeper level.
Generations of Grace is set up as a “unified curriculum” for this very reason. Every week, children in each age range learn from the same passage of Scripture in a way that is appropriate for their respective age levels. A unified curriculum enables families to discuss one passage together each week, reinforcing the lesson that children have learned in Sunday School.
