Continuing Education Scholarship for Christian Educators and Youth Workers

The Resource and Education Committee is proud to offer a scholarship to support the continuing education of our current Christian educators and youth workers.

This scholarship will pay the registration cost for any of these four conferences: Association of Presbyterian Church Educators (APCE), Northeast Association of Church Educators (NEACE), Presbyterian Youth Workers Association (PYWA) and Progressive Youth Ministry (PYM). These scholarships are drawn from a special fund previously used for Christian Education Certification: once the funds have been spent, they will not be replenished.

Requirements: Applicants must be a clergy member, staff member, or layperson currently active in Christian Education or Youth Ministries in the Presbytery of Genesee Valley. Each person may only receive one scholarship from this fund. There is no application deadline; applications will be considered by the Resource and Education Committee as they are submitted. Plan for approximately a one-month delay before receiving news about your application, since the committee meets monthly. Recipients of this scholarship must write a newsletter article about their conference experience (less than one page, pictures encouraged) to share with the presbytery.

Introducing PC(USA) Denominational Children’s Curriculum

Growing in Grace & Gratitude

Here is a very short video to help get the word out about a PC(USA) curriculum

A Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) denominational children’s curriculum will help transform the lives of children and those who love them, shaped by grace and gratitude.

Growing in Grace & Gratitude is rooted in the foundation of Presbyterian identity where God’s grace and our gratitude are the heartbeat of our faith, life, and worship. The curriculum extends an invitation to discipleship that inspires children to learn and practice hospitality, generosity, and love, and it reaches beyond Sunday morning, encouraging children to live their lives as an expression of God’s grace.

Published by Congregational Ministries Publishing, Growing in Grace & Gratitude is a quarterly curriculum available in English and Spanish. Each session shares a Bible story that reveals God’s grace for us. Through fun, age-appropriate activities, prayer, and singing, children and their leaders will celebrate the meaning of this grace in their lives as they encounter a living God.

“This is the way you teach Reformed faith to children,” said Lib Caldwell, noted Presbyterian educator and professor emerita at McCormick Theological Seminary. “With thoughtful biblical background for the teacher and age-appropriate learning activities, children will grow in their understanding of God’s grace as it is revealed through biblical stories.”

Churches can try Growing in Grace & Gratitude for free by ordering a sampler in English or Spanish at pcusastore.com.

Congregational Ministries Publishing is the denominational curriculum publisher of the PC(USA). Its mission is to bring glory to God by inspiring, equipping, and connecting Presbyterians of all ages with faithful, affordable, educational resources that further commitments to live as disciples of Jesus Christ.
