For children PreK through grade 3: Godly Play is about coming to know God through the art of storytelling. In Godly Play, children are encouraged on their spiritual journeys through the beautiful, rich language found in every Godly Play story. The stories are told with the help of simple organic materials that the children are invited to explore and play with after the storytelling time. Godly Play happens every Sunday through the school year. We begin the year with the “Circle of the Church Year”, “The Holy Family”, “Creation”, and “The Flood”.


The goal of our Connect! curriculum (grade 4 on up) is “to engage preteens in God’s big story through videos, Bible exploration and hands-on projects“. Each class begins with a warm-up game or discussion, followed by a video that often demonstrates a real life connection between the Bible readings and an everyday dilemma. The kids then read aloud the Bible passages and discuss. For more information go to
