Our Preschool and Kindergarten class on Sunday mornings engage in “Godly Play.” Godly Play is a Montessori based approach to spiritual formation and religious education. It was developed by Dr. Jerome Berryman, an Episcopal church educator. Inspired by Maria Montessori and Sofia Cavaletti, Jerome Berryman founded and developed Godly Play, which is now used in churches all over the world. Godly Play is based upon the recognition that children have an innate sense of the presence of God. Godly Play provides children with a language to help them identify and express their spirituality so it can be explored and strengthened. The Godly Play approach uses story, play, ritual, and creativity to enhance the child’s authentic experience of God so it can contribute to the spiritual life of the child and assist the child in making meaning in the world.
Sundays following the commencement of morning service at 10:30am, year round.
