Worship 4 Kids is for our 6-12 year old youth and we are following the Godly Play program which involves an imaginative method for nurturing the spiritual lives of children and youth. It is based on the Montessori method of interpretation by Jerome Berryman for religious education. It has been around for many years and used by many churches all over the world. It allows us to have our own sacred space similar but different from the adults in the sanctuary. We meet around a circle in our Godly Play Room after entering our space invited in by our doorperson and storyteller. In Godly Play, we enter into Parables, Silence, Sacred Stories and Liturgical Action in order to discover the depths of God, ourselves, one another and the world around us. We have fun learning about the stories and share in wondering after the story presentation, respond to the story by our work or through art & other materials, share a feast and say goodbye as we leave the space. We ask parents to take turns providing our weekly feast of nutritious snacks.
Older Youth 13 & up are invited to join in or assist as needed and we will offer them activities for connecting with other youth outside of church Sunday mornings
