About the Children’s Department: Deeper In for Children Scope & Sequence for the First Year

[ad_1]

  

I’ve been writing about Deeper In for Children for a few days, so today I am going to share the scope and sequence for the first year – Grace – to help you see what it is all about. With  Deeper In for Children your church will spend a year focusing on the very important truths of what God’s Word – from cover to cover – has to say about Grace. Each quarter has an intentional focus – the first quarter the focus is on our need for Grace. Second Quarter we learn about our challenge to choose Grace. Third quarter we look at how Grace changes us. The fourth quarter we focus on what Jesus wants us to know about Grace by first of all reviewing what we learned about Grace the first month (parents/grandparents are invited to join their children) and then how Jesus shows HIs great love and Grace!
