Godly Play Children ages 5-12
Sundays 10:00am -11:00am

Godly Play is a Montessori based method of teaching children which recognizes that children have an innate sense of the presence of God. The Godly Play approach teaches classical Christian language in a way that enhances the child’s authentic experience of God so it can contribute to the creative life of the child and the world. When Christian language is learned by the Godly Play approach, it is learned as a means to know God and to make meaning of our lives. It is about locating each lesson in the whole system of Christian language and involving the creative process to discover the depths of meaning in them. Godly Play respects the innate spirituality of children and encourages curiosity and imagination in experiencing the mystery and joy of God.
