Godly Play (for children up through 2nd Grade)
The Godly Play program, developed by Montessori teacher and Episcopal priest Jerome Berryman, has been a special part of St. Paul’s Christian Education ministry for years! We love that it provides a unique way to share our Christian faith with children and to give them language to talk about God and church.
Godly Play classrooms are different: the shelves are full of hands-on learning materials and art supplies. During each class, the teachers share a story with the children, and then invite them to “wonder” about the story through reflection questions. This open-ended discussion is intended not to check children’s comprehension of the story’s facts but to lead the children to think more deeply about what the story means to them. The children are also given time to creatively respond to the story through drawing, playing, journaling, painting, or other methods.
Your child is welcome to join us for Godly Play on Sunday mornings, during the education hour 9:00 – 10:00 am. Come wonder about God’s amazing love with us!For more information, explore the following links:
