BCLR Kids Mission Statement

It is the mission of BCLR Kids to assist** the parents of BCLR members in the evangelizing and discipleship of their grade school children. We seek to provide godly instruction and godly examples to the children of BCLR infant to 6th grade, so that they might see  Christ in His Word and in us!
** By assistance, we mean that we are not attempting to either usurp or replace the God-given responsibility of parents to train and to raise their children (Deut. 6:4-7) in the “fear and admonition of the Lord” (Eph. 6:2). We are, however, committed to coming alongside parents to provide educational and other opportunities to point children to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

Our Curriculum

Our grade school children use Generations of Grace curriculum by Grace Community Church. Generations of Grace is a biblically based and God-centered curriculum designed for children three years old through the sixth grade. Over a three-year period, this curriculum covers the Old Testament historical books, the life of Christ, and lessons from Acts and Revelation.
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. We call this a “unified curriculum.” A unified curriculum enables families to discuss one passage together each week, reinforcing the lesson that children have learned in equipping hour.
Generations of Grace is unique in its design to encourage a high degree of interaction between student and teacher. For students in the elementary grades, the Bible lessons are written in a question-and-answer format. This ensures that students participate in and understand each lesson.
