From September to May, we have educational programming on Sunday from 9:40 to 10:20 a.m.  All of our children’s programs are held in the lower level of the building.

 

 

 

Godly Play: Pre-K (must be 3 by September 15th) through 3rd Grade

Godly Play is a Montessori-based approach to religious education. The Godly Play rooms are sacred, beautiful spaces. Trays of story materials on low shelves surround the circle of children.

Our liturgy gives Godly Play its shape. Welcoming the children by name, we encourage them to enter the room with reverence. We present a biblical story using materials of wood and cloth, sand and stone. Children are invited to enter and find a place in the story, making it their own. The storyteller asks wondering questions, such as: I wonder what part is the most important? I wonder where you are in the story? I wonder what part of the story is about you?

Children have time to respond to the presentation by working with art or story materials. The group gathers back in the circle to share a feast of
bread and water. They pray as a group and receive a blessing before they leave.

Godly Play 1: Preschool and Kindergarten. This group meets in the Mark Room.
Godly Play 2: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Grade. This group meets in the Matthew Room.

 

 

Bridging Sunday School: Youth Grades 4 and 5
Just like the title says, this group is a bridging group…that delicate time of moving from childhood into young adolescence. We want to help bridge that time in a young person’s life as they journey through this time of transition. We use the Connect Curriculum.

Youth will discover the role they have in living out their faith. This year, we will focus on the Old Testament.
Beginnings: The majesty of creation and the power of the Flood.East Metro Food Drive

The Promise: God’s covenant and the stories of Jacob and Joseph.

Freedom: God rescues captive Israel and leads them to the Promised Land.
Kings and Prophets: God provides Kings and Prophets to guide Israel.
Conquered: Even when foreign rulers conquer Israel, God stays faithful.

When: Meets every Sunday morning 9:40 a.m. to 10:20 a.m.
Where: The Genesis Annex room, downstairs at the far end of Fellowship Hall on the left hand side.
