Children have an innate sense of God’s presence. Starting this fall, St. Paul’s is going to start using the Godly Play approach with our youngest children in the pre-K Sunday School class.
What does Godly Play mean? This approach helps children to explore and learn about their faith through story-- it is based on Montessori principles. Children involved will gain religious language and learn to use it to describe their faith-- all through the use of “wondering”, and play. We have been using this technique in the Children’s Homily since last fall, and have used it this week in our Vacation Bible Camp-- the children are incredibly tuned in to the stories, and can figure out where they are in each story.
We are excited to announce that to kick off, we are hosting a three-day Godly Play training right here at St. Paul’s. Anyone interested in attending should register at the below website-- please contact Kristen Morgan to get a discount code (which all parishioners and teachers are eligible for as we are the host for the event).
