At 9 AM, “Sunday School” engages children in faith formation through storytelling, games, art, and fun! This year, we’ll be doing Sunday school “the Godly Play way!”
Children ages 4 through third grade will travel to the children’s chapel partway through their class time for an immersion in a Bible story. This special experience begins at the door, the “threshold,” where children are named, warmly greeted, and asked if they are ready. Inside, the children form a circle of belonging from which they enter the story. The story is told using manipulatives (wooden figures, painted plaques, beautifully finished props) –a focal point for the eyes and the heart. At the end, the storyteller and children wonder together, before the children leave to creatively and communally “bring the story home” in their regular classrooms. This is a prayerful and playful style of faith formation that leaves an indelible mark. We are so excited to share it with you and your children!
