Children's Education

Godly Play

Christian formation for our children in kindergarten through 5th grade is provided using Godly Play. Through this program, we share stories of our faith from the Bible, church history, and our liturgy. We use simple materials in a Montessori style, allowing all present to be one with the story. Godly Play seeks to give each child the vocabulary to express their inherent relationship with God and encourage their faith journey in our community. Two adults are needed for each class. The “Door Person” welcomes the children into the Godly Playspace (room), helps with craft materials, preparing feast (snack & drink), and supporting any other needs. The “Storyteller” leads the class by memorizing, then presenting the story using provided materials, wondering about the story with the children, praying with the children before the feast, and blessing each child before leaving the space.
