Children and Youth Formation
September 11 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Children and Youth Formation begins September 11, 2022, 9:00–10:00 a.m.
Children 3 years old through 4th grade are invited to join us for Godly Play. Godly Play was developed by Episcopal priest, author, and teacher Jerome Berryman. Based on the Montessori method of experiential learning, Godly Play uses a careful telling of scripture stories and engaging story figures to encourage children to seek and find their own answers to their faith questions. This unique approach to religious education invites children to wonder about themselves, God and the world in a way that is playful and meaningful to them.
Youth in 5th grade and up are invited to study the Bible utilizing Blessed to Bless: #An Introduction to the Bible by Episcopal priest Tim Sean Youmans. A comprehensive introduction to the Bible aimed at teens, this study and class endeavors to give our young people a greater understanding of the Bible and the historical context behind Biblical stories. Each class offers scripture, questions for reflection and discussion, and fellowship.
