Godly Play - What Is It All About?

Godly Play, a Montessori-inspired way of worshiping with children, is the foundation of our children’s formation process.  Godly Play is based upon the recognition that children have an innate sense of the presence of God and it offers language to help our younger worshipers identify and express that deep awareness of God so that it can be explored and strengthened.  Godly Play fosters opportunities to encounter God and grow in our shared Christian language – parable, sacred story, liturgical action, and reflective silence. Grounded in the stories of our Christian faith and the rituals of our Episcopal tradition, this way of worshiping invites all who join in Godly Play to become more fully aware of the mystery of God’s presence in our lives.

We now have 2 Godly Play sanctuaries - 4 year olds-2nd grade and 3rd-5th grade. We welcome visitors and have enough room for one adult guest in each Godly Play circle every Sunday!
