Summer Wondering…Godly Play for Adults

Manny and Godly Play Teachers copy

Summer Wondering is coming to a close this Sunday, July 31. Godly Play is offered for adults who want to explore some of the sacred stories of the Christian faith. Godly Play gives the chance to dig a little deeper into these stories, hear these stories again in a different way, and share the richness of Godly Play with the entire parish. Summer Wondering runs concurrently with Summer Faith and the Arts.
