What is Godly Play?
It is child-centered learning that illustrates how to create meaning with the language of the Christian tradition in a time frame that mirrors the pattern of worship. Children have an innate sense of the presence of God. The Godly Play approach helps them to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their spiritual experience though wonder and play. Based on Montessori principles and developed using a spiral curriculum, the Godly Play method serves children through early, middle and late childhood and beyond. Come join us! For children up to 5th grade, Sunday mornings, 9:15 – 10:15 a.m. in the Godly Play room. (Sept-April, No Godly Play on the 1st Sunday of each month). Learn more at www.godlyplayfoundation.org
Youth Group — Living the Good News
For kids grades 4th thru 12th, 2nd and 4th Sunday mornings each month at 9:15 a.m. in the Youth Room below Cardwell Hall. Study, fellowship and special activities planned around our young people’s busy schedules bring them into the life of the church. These provide a safe and nurturing place for youths to be accepted, loved and grow into a mature Christian experience.
What should young people do with their lives today? Many things, obviously. But the most daring thing is to create stable communities in which the terrible disease of loneliness can be cured.
