Godly Play Schedule August-December 2021

Our parish provides a weekly opportunity for children ages 4 and up to take part in Godly Play, a Montessori-based Christian formation program for children. Godly Play makes meaning through story, wonder, and play; and nurtures spiritual lives by honoring the centrality, competency, and capacity of children. (Language adapted from Godly Play mission statement.)

The result of a lifetime of research and practice by theologian, author and educator, Rev. Dr. Jerome Berryman, the Godly Play® method is a curriculum of spiritual practice exploring the mystery of God’s presence in our lives. The Godly Play curriculum engages what is most exciting about religious education: God inviting us into—and pursuing us in the midst of—Scripture and spiritual experience. Godly Play® practice teaches us to listen for God and to make authentic and creative responses to God’s call in our lives.

Each week’s Godly Play has its own lesson, the current schedule for which is listed below.
