Godly Play is a Montessori based play which explains bible stories in an age appropriate and fun way using figurines, textures and materials, then an art project.

 

While we are now offering Godly Play the first Sunday of the month, it is not currently available every week.  In lieu of in person Godly Play, we have weekly lessons based on the Arch Book Children's Series.  Here is this week's material as well as some from the past few weeks.

Here are some additional online resources for children during this time.
