For young children ages four – third grade, we offer offers a Montessori-based curriculum called Godly Play during our worship services. Godly Play guides us through the liturgical year and introduces kids to the major Old and New Testament stories. The kids gather in a circle to hear the morning’s story, then interact with the storyteller in a time of reflective questions. After that, the children transition to individual work time, during which they either use the story sets themselves or create art as a means of being with God.
Godly Play begins in Room 8 at the start of each worship service and runs for about 45 minutes. The children are brought to the service during The Peace, in time to take communion with their families.
