Godly Play


Godly Play

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. Even adults have found Godly Play to be an enriching experience and can be the setting for valuable time spent with the younger Christians in our midst. Come join us!

At the Cathedral, we'll be holding sessions of Godly Play on the first Sunday of the month, beginning at 10:30 a.m. at the Memorial Hall. Any who have insight into the complexities of education will understand the need for us to integrate what we learn into our daily lives. Thus far, Godly Play has helped us in our approach to a more rounded "Christian Formation" as opposed to our offering simply "Christian information."

Participating children may come directly to the Hall before 10:30 a.m.. Alternatively, interested children of families attending the 10:00 a.m. worship on that morning will be blessed, sent and escorted to the Hall for the session of Godly Play. Parents are welcome to accompany them.

Please direct questions or offers to assist to Kurt Schmidt or Cheryl Jacobs. All are welcome!
