Godly Play
Godly Play
The result of a lifetime of research and practice by theologian, author and educator The Rev. Dr.
Jerome Berryman, the Godly Play® method is a curriculum of spiritual practice exploring the mystery of God’s presence in our lives. The Godly Play curriculum engages what is most exciting about religious education: God inviting us into—and pursuing us in the midst of—Scripture and spiritual experience. Godly Play practice teaches us to listen for God and to make authentic and creative responses to God’s call in our lives.
Godly Play is a creative, imaginative approach to Christian formation and spiritual guidance.
Godly Play has a foundation of 40+ years of research and practice.
Godly Play values process, openness, discovery, community and relationships.
Godly Play models the worship life, stories, symbols and rituals of Christian congregations.
Godly Play allows practitioners to make relevant and personal theological meaning.
Godly Play nurtures participants to larger dimensions of belief and faith through wondering and play.

Rite 13
Rite 13 celebrates the beginning of the journey to Adulthood. These youth formation classes explore faith, society, ethics, spirituality, and mission. Our youth also participate in Deanery and Diocesan youth events.

The Adult Forum meets on Sunday mornings from 9:00 – 10:00 am in the new parish hall classroom 3 during the school year. It offers a variety of opportunities for participants to go deeper in their understanding of the Christian faith and life. Classes include topics like Bible study, prayer, book discussions, and our connection to the wider Episcopal Church. Each series of classes lasts from two to six weeks, so it’s easy for new participants to jump in.
