Godly Play is a method of Christian formation and spiritual direction for elementary school aged children. The goal is to teach children the art of using religious language to express their own understanding and knowledge of God. Stories are told with objects which encourage children to enter into those stories and to relate them to their personal experience. A Godly Play class typically ends with an art response, prayer, feast and gathering time.
**Note: Older children are invited this Sunday to hear our story and act as “Work Experts” helping younger children learn new art / craft techniques, and to help prepare our first feast! Parents are invited to return to (in-person!) Parents Exchange, a long-cherished, community building weekly gathering which also begins at 9:45 a.m. and concludes at 10:45 a.m. when the Godly Play session ends.
Outside of COVID-19 restrictions, childcare is provided from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM during Sunday Worship and Church School for infants through preschool. Qualified, compassionate staff care for our youngest members in a beautiful and clean nursery in the Church School Wing.
