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 email@example.com to the Rev. Lucy LaRocca, Vicar of Zion.
