Our Children’s Ministry program focuses on Godly Play, a story-based religious education curriculum that is based on the pioneering work of Maria Montessori and Sofia Caveletti. It is a curriculum that honors a child’s natural sense of the sacred and seeks to provide a richly structured environment in which the religious potential of a child may freely develop. Each lesson is presented in a story form based on Holy Scripture and provides sensorial materials that children can work with in a safe, stimulating environment. The stories are appropriate for children of all ages.
If you have any questions please call Mary Cotton.
