Godly Play for Kids Who Are Growing Up

Godly Play is not only for the young and youngest children; it comes full circle for kids who are growing up to soon be teenagers! Children in grades 4, 5 and 6 will be taught in the new Godly Play class room 210 on the second floor. At this age the children will hear the familiar stories of the people of Israel, the stories Jesus told in parables and the stories around the Christian holidays in new ways. The stories will sometimes be put together in ways that create a whole new view of what we thought we already knew (Synthesis stories). Sometimes the children will get to put together a new lesson – the part that has not been written yet in the story of God and God’s children. The class will be given tasks to help with the younger classes and do service oriented activities.
