Our Godly Play program is geared for children four to twelve years old and is offered during the 10:15 worship service. Through interactive play and story-telling, Godly Play teaches children to become more fully aware of the mystery of God’s presence in their lives.
We are committed to offering to our children an education program that focuses on our story as God’s people through Scripture and the customs and rituals of our Episcopal heritage.
The children join their families during the Eucharist to receive a blessing or communion.
We also offer nurturing, loving care for younger children.
Godly Play teaches children the art of using religious language – parable, sacred story, silence and liturgical action – helping them become more fully aware of the mystery of God’s presence in their lives.
Developed by author, teacher and Episcopal priest, Jerome W. Berryman, Godly Play is offered throughout the United States within denominations as diverse and varied as Catholic, Baptist, Episcopalian, Pentecostal, Lutheran, and Presbyterian.
Designed for children aged two to twelve, Godly Play has been classroom tested since 1972. Deeply spiritual and highly creative, Godly Play is also used in schools, hospitals, homeless shelters, and retirement centers. Internationally, Godly Play classrooms are found in the United Kingdom, Finland, Germany, Canada, Tanzania, Australia, and in Spanish speaking countries.
