This spring quarter takes us from Transfiguration Sunday through Eastertide. We begin with light, bright shining light from Jesus on the mountaintop and the voice of God instructing the disciples, and us, to “listen to him.” As we move through Lent, the light diminishes week by week as there are those who seek to put out the light of Christ. On Palm Sunday, we will hear of Jesus’ welcome into the city of Jerusalem with cheers and celebration—a parade! But we can’t leap past the events of Holy Week. Jesus is crucified. That story must be told too. Then, on that glorious Easter morning, the light breaks forth. Eastertide—the time when the liturgical color is still white to celebrate the glory of resurrection—is a time for expressing gratitude for God’s grace and love. It is truly a time for expressing gratitude for God’s grace, love, and embrace.

Series Description
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.
