Godly Play® is really a young people’s church service. It parallels what we do in “regular church". We have scripture, we understand what part of the church year we are in, and we have a “feast” or communal celebration. It is amazing experiential learning!
You ALL are invited to check out Godly Play® as helpers, observers or participants. You are also invited to find youngsters who will learn all about church in a fun and joyful way and bring them to us on Sunday mornings.
Anyone wishing to provide funds for our Sunday School Godly Play® initiative, please make checks payable to St. John’s, with “CE curriculum” in the memo line and place in the offering plate.
With Godly Play®, we tell Bible stories to children and encourage them to enter into the stories. This helps them wonder about them and relate them to their personal experiences. (Feel free to check out their website)!
Here you will meet the teachers and find information on our programs and events. Please contact Kerry Anderson, Youth Director or Jeanne Hendricks, Committee Chair, with any questions or to volunteer.
