During the 10:30 service, a children’s Liturgy of the Word is offered for 3-year-olds through 4th graders. In Chapel, children sing songs, hear one of the Bible stories of the day, and say prayers. Families begin in church together at 10:30 and children are invited to follow the cross to chapel after the reading of the Gospel. Children rejoin their families in the church before Birthday Blessings.
Children have an innate sense of the presence of God. The Godly Play approach helps them to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their spiritual experience though wonder and play. Based on Montessori principles and developed using a spiral curriculum, the Godly Play method serves children through early, middle and late childhood and beyond. Come join us!
Godly Play —Godly Play is offered from 9:15-10:15am to our children three years through 4th grade. This program fosters wonder and understanding of scripture and liturgy for our youngest members.
