Learning About God's Grace

We studied about how God's grace greatly affected the lives of Matthew, tax collector turned apostle; John Newton, a man known for his criminal past and harsh personality until God's grace changed his life, and in recognition of what God had done in him, he penned the most well-known hymn, "Amazing Grace."

God's grace truly is amazing, and He is so good to show it to us everyday in each of our lives!

Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed,
for His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.

Mrs. Voelker, who can sign in English and in Portuguese, taught us "God is So Good."



We also worked on an art project entitled,
"God's Grace Changes Me"

Noah, Estefania, Ellen and Abby hard at work on their project!

Joao and Keegan also working hard on their project!

Raphael and Ellen meticulously coloring their butterflies!

We discussed how God designed butterfly's with symmetric markings.



Miss Peters and Joao working on cutting out the butterfly.

Putting all the pieces together!

We are so proud of our finished product!


At the top of the paper, each person drew a self-portrait. 
Underneath the picture is the following quote:

Just as God changes a caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly,
so He is still in the process of changing me!



God's grace is so good, so amazing!  Where would I be without it?
