Oconee Street UMC will soon be offering “Godly Play,” an interactive church experience for children ages 3 to 6.
Godly Play teaches children the art of using Christian language-parable, sacred story, silence and liturgical action, helping them become more fully aware of the mystery of God’s presence in their lives. The program is based on a lifetime of research and practice by theologian, author and educator, The Rev. Dr. Jerome Berryman.
At Oconee Street UMC, Godly Play will be offered at 717 during the 11 a.m. service hour. There will be information sessions held for parents and anyone interested in learning more about Godly Play, and anyone interested in helping. The sessions will be held:
- Monday, Sept. 18 at 7 p.m., 717
- Thursday, Sept. 21 at 7 p.m., 717
- Sunday, Oct. 15 at 9:45 a.m. (during Adult Sunday School), Conference Room
Childcare is available for these sessions. For more information or to RSVP, contact Julie Gunby at email@example.com.
