    Godly Play Sunday School ---

    In addition to a toddler room and Youth Group, we have two Godly Play class rooms for children ages 5 to 11. Our Godly Play Sunday school is all about stories. The teachers use beautifully crafted figurines to teach children the stories of the Bible.

    The goal of Godly Play is to enable children to use sacred story, parable, liturgical action, and silence to become more aware of the mystery of God’s presence in their lives and in the community of children gathered for worship.

    Every Sunday, during the school year, the biblical story is followed by a time of reflection when the worshipping community of children and teachers engage in open, shared dialogue about the story with one another, guided by the storyteller.

    This method was developed by the Rev. Dr. Jerome Berryman, a Montessori teacher and priest, and is used by churches of many denominations throughout the US and in many other countries.
