Sunday School

Children ages 3-10

We use the Godly Play curriculum. Each Sunday we start at 9:15 am and end about 10:30 am when the children rejoin their families to participate in the Communion. We also offer Godly Play as a bilingual program starting at 1 pm and continuing to 2pm when the children join their families in the Spanish Communion.

What is Godly Play?

The goal of Godly Play is to show how to be open to the Holy Spirit, the Creator, and the Redeemer all at once and all the time in every place. To achieve this goal is to help children become deeply rooted as Christians and yet at the same time use this powerful narrative to be open and creative.

Godly Play is a creative and imaginative approach to Christian nurture.

Godly Play is based on long established, tried and tested approaches.

Godly Play invites the children into the stories and provides the opportunity for them to connect the stories with their personal experiences.

Godly Play encourages the child to move into larger dimensions of belief and faith through wondering questions and open-ended response time.

Godly Play is a way of preparing children to join in the worship and life of their congregations as they develop a deeper understanding of stories, symbols and rites.
