Godly Play is a religious-education program that uses storytelling and Montessori-like methods to engage and nurture children in their spiritual development. Godly Play is based on the belief that children already have an experience of the mystery of God, but often lack the language to express their thoughts and understanding. Central to the Godly Play experience is the telling of a sacred story, followed by an opportunity for the children to ponder “wondering questions” that lead them deeper into the meaning of the story, their relationship with God and with one another. Open-ended art response material and the opportunity to work with the story material give children time to process and reflect on the sacred stories and liturgical practices that are presented. Two classrooms for Pre-K through first grade (Godly Play 1) and second through fifth grade (Godly Play 2) are located on the lower level. Godly Play classes meet at 10:10 am. Classes meet most Sundays this academic school year beginning the first week of October 2018 through the first week of June 2019.
