Fall 2018 Christian Education Schedule
Sundays (Starting Sept. 9)
Nursery: Nursery care is available for your little ones from 9am-Noon.
- Godly Play 1: An introductory Godly Play experience for Pre-schoolers and Lower Elementary Schoolers. The Godly Play approach helps children 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, Godly Play provides a unique, individualized Christian foundation to each child. (Lower Level, Godly Play Room 1)
- Godly Play 2: The spiral curriculum deepens in this Godly Play class for upper elementary schoolers. Children are exposed to more and more stories from Scripture and Tradition. They are also invited into deeper methods of theological reflection. This class is the perfect foundation for a Christian life and is a wonderful place to bring life’s burning questions. (Lower Level, Godly Play Room 2)
- Youth Sunday School: Using a variety of resources, Middle and High schoolers explore the lectionary scripture of the day and apply it to their own lives. About half way through, middle schoolers and high schoolers separate by age group to have some more focused discussion with a mentor. (Lower Level, Youth Room)
