Godly Play at St. Peter’s During COVID


Pages

The Mystery of Christmas

Godly Play is a Montessori-based program for children 3 years through 1st Grade. Children are told stories from the Bible using figures representing the people/animals in the story. The children are then asked to wonder about the story and respond to it in their own way.

During the time that in-person church activities are limited due to COVID-19, St. Peter’s is offering Godly Play stories on YouTube. Look for stories told either by St. Peter’s Godly Play teachers on the church’s YouTube channel, or for links to the week’s story as told by Godly Play Foundation or other teachers, provided below.

Schedule: January – May 2021 stories coming soon!
