Raising your hands above your head and then
bringing your arms slowly down
keeping them outstretched.
Extending your arms in front of you
and then behind you
embracing all of the space around you
knowing that God is in this space with you.
Then slowly reach down to your feet.
This is your
Circle of Grace.
You are in it.
Because this holistic concept includes all senses, it allows children and young people to identify uncomfortable situations long before inappropriate touch may occur. The Circle of Grace program teaches children and young people to seek help from a trusted adult, reinforcing God's presence in their real life struggles.
"Circle of Grace is so timely. Thank you! Even if the church leadership did not require it, the culture that we live in
does. It is a perfect way to show that living our faith is a real adventure in the world in which we find ourselves.
Faith intersects with life in the development of this program."
