Godly Play

Every Sunday, September - June, our children and youth attend Sunday School classes using Godly Play. A sacred circle is formed with the storyteller and children and a story is told, using hands on materials. The children are invited to "wonder" about the story with the Godly Play storyteller. They then create a response to the story using art, words, or drama in any medium they chose. This is called the work time. The class ends with a feast; a simple snack representing our unity in the circle of God. Children are invited to bring their prayers and thanksgivings to the circle. Children receive a blessing on their week as they leave.
