Sunday School

Godly Play
For children in PreK - 2nd grade
Sunday mornings, 9:45 am, Gather in Room 112

This class is based on the child-centered Godly Play curriculum, developed by Jerome Berryman to explore the foundational stories of the Bible. Each class period begins with a “feast”, a small snack that we share together. When we are all gathered, we share a story, illustrated with kid-friendly materials. The story is followed by work time, during which students can reflect through art or play the stories they’ve heard. Children enter the church at the Offertory, so that all are together during the Eucharist.

Seasons of the Spirit
For 3rd – 5th graders

Sunday mornings 9:45 am, Gather in Room 112

3rd through 5th graders are invited to join Seasons of the Spirit, using the lectionary-based curriculum to delve more deeply into the Bible and what it tells us. Each class centers around a story drawn from the lectionary. At this age there is often in-depth discussion of the concepts and meaning of the lectionary readings, including how it applies to the lives of participants. A group activity is available, including crafts, prayer and/or service projects.

Children’s Chapel
Once a month, all children will meet together to celebrate the Liturgy of the Word through music and song, Bible lessons, prayer and other joyful activities. Children’s Chapel starts at 9:45 in the Chapel of the Good Shepherd.
