Comprehensive Sunday School Curriculum

The Generations of Grace Sunday school curriculum teaches God's redemptive plan through Bible narrative.

The Beginning

More than 20 years ago the children’s ministry leaders and elders at Grace Community Church had a goal to create a God-centered children’s curriculum. This was born out of a collective desire to see God exalted to His rightful place as the Hero of every Bible story. Sadly, many curriculums we encountered were man-focused, story driven, or lacking biblical content.

Nine Year Cycle

Generations of Grace (GOG) is a three-year program for children from preschool through sixth grade. The program teaches the same curriculum to the different age groups, progressively getting more in-depth as the student matures. It is our goal to reinforce and expound upon the Scriptures more fully as the student develops in age. Our curriculum is designed to be reused for years, with the teachers providing an age-appropriate lesson for each lesson in the curriculum. Provided are different approaches to each lesson in the teacher book based on the age of the student.

Encouraging Biblical Teaching in the Home

GOG is not just for children's ministry, but the whole family. While our curriculum contains activities for Sunday school, the program can easily be adapted for use in homeschooling, personal use, or as an entire family.

Family Devotional Books

The Family Devotionals are structured for use during the week within the home. It includes extra questions that are helpful for family discussion to encourage meditation on the passage throughout the week. The books provide five daily devotionals that correspond with each lesson in the Teacher Book. It was created to make children’s ministry what children’s ministry should be—a way to equip and encourage parents to fulfill their duty to train up their children in the Lord. Each daily devotional indicates the portion of the passage to be read, provides concise insights into the passage, and suggests questions and discussion ideas, some simple for young children and others requiring a lot of thought for older children and adults. It also includes pictures illustrating the lesson.
