Godly Play: 10:00 – 11:00 Sunday mornings in the Godly Play classroom

Child-centered, spiritual, and fun, Godly Play helps our children explore the spiritual dimension of their lives and build on their innate faith. Each week  we tell the Biblical story in its purest form – face to face and heart to heart within a listening circle of children. Using multisensory materials and simple, beautiful language, we tell stories from the Old and New Testaments and from our liturgical life together. We then “wonder” together about the story and have an individual art response time.

Each week, a Godly Play session includes time to:

  • Get ready (enter into listening silence, the first building clock of prayer)
  • Experience a wonder-filled Biblical story with all five senses
  • Personally explore the story using rich classroom materials
  • Pray together as a group
  • Enjoy a simple shared meal

Large as the sky, rich and imaginative, and filled with food for thought, Godly Play stories will make faith come alive for your child.  Godly Play is a Montessori method for the Christian spiritual education of elementary-aged children developed by Jerome Berryman, a leading Montessori educator and ordained Episcopal priest  You can learn more about this outstanding curriculum at www.godlyplay.org/
