The Godly Play program at St. James is a Sunday morning opportunity for children ages 3 yrs. old - 5th grade to build their language and imagination around the foundations of the Christian Faith. Godly is offered during the 9:30 A.M. service during the school year. Children meet in the Nave (Church) with their families and then leave together for the Godly Play rooms. There they share a story and time to express themselves in play and art. Following the service, children are picked up by their families in the Todd Center (building directly north of the church).
The Godly Play curriculum offers a means of imaginatively engaging our children to hear, articulate, and take ownership of the great stories of the Christian faith. These stories unfold through storytelling in the Godly Play classrooms every Sunday morning carefully and thoughtfully introducing St. James’s children to the central stories of the Old and New Testaments, the life of the Church, and the liturgical year. We are always in need of volunteers to serve as Godly Play storytellers and doorkeepers.
