Godly Play Open House

It's not your parents' Sunday School. There are no handouts, matching craft projects, or memorization required in Godly Play.

 At Zion, before a child even enters the Godly Play room, anticipation begins to build; something important and wonderful is about to take place! Children sit in a circle around the story teller, who uses beautiful objects to tell a parable from Jesus or a story about our spiritual ancestors.

Godly Play is a Montessori like experience developed by the Rev. Jerome Berryman with the recognition that children already have an innate sense of the presence of God. What they need is the appropriate language to help them identify and express it, so it can be explored and strengthened. In each session, children experience a Bible story and are encouraged to wonder about its meaning and its connection to their lives. For the past three years, Zion has been using Godly Play and has established storytellers and an extensive collection of Godly Play stories.

On Saturday, April 28th from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Zion will hold a Godly Play Open House. Come and experience Godly Play with your child. Hear the parable of the Mustard Seed and wonder together about all it holds for you.

Space is limited to 10 children and 10 parents. RSVP to 203-488-7395, or zionvicar@att.net to the Rev. Lucy LaRocca, Vicar of Zion.

Make May Matter...
With donations of women’s toiletries and underwear to be given to Loaves & Fishes. Soap, shampoos, lotions, feminine hygiene products, new panties, and new or used bras will be collected during the month of May for the guests at Loaves & Fishes. All of these items do not qualify for purchase with S.N.A.P. or other assistance programs, so it is a real hardship for underemployed, underserved families.Please drop off all items in the designated area in the Parish Hall. Thanks so much for your generosity; your small acts demonstrate great love for God’s least served.
 
We will go to work at Loaves and Fishes on Saturday May 26th. Meet in the Zion parking lot at 7:15 a.m. to car pool to St. Paul and St. James Episcopal Church in New Haven. We are usually done by 11:00 a.m.
