Circle of Grace Training

Monday, February 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Circle of Grace is a Christian safe environment curriculum used and promoted in the CRCNA that helps teach the value of positive relationships with God and others. Circle of Grace educates and empowers children and young people to actively participate in a safe environment both for themselves and with others.

It is never too early to help children understand how they are created in the image of God and how
relationships in life are called to be sacred. Understanding this can help children and youth protect
themselves, while at the same time be respectful of and toward others.

Circle of Grace helps children and youth know how to:

  1. Identify and maintain appropriate physical, emotional, spiritual, and sexual boundaries.
  2. Recognize when boundary violations are about to occur.
  3. Demonstrate how to take action when boundaries are threatened or violated.

Key Concepts of Circle of Grace:

  1. God gives each of us a Circle of Grace where God is present.
  2. God is present because God desires a relationship with us.
  3. God helps us know what belongs in our Circle of Grace & what does not belong in our Circle of Grace.
  4. God helps us know when to ask for help from someone we trust.

Note: Circle of Grace is intended to supplement a K-12 church education curriculum for 1-4 weeks per year. Teachers can often draw from the concepts throughout the year embedding them into your child/youth ministry.

*Safe Church ministry will support each church in establishing Circle of Grace into your current curriculum.
