Godly Play is a creative, imaginative approach to Christian education and spiritual guidance. Godly Play has a Montessori foundation with 40+ years of research and practice. It is based on the idea that children learn through story, experience, and hands-on play.
You’ll notice right when you walk into a Godly Play room that it’s special. The materials are all wooden and other natural materials. The room is quiet and nurturing. All of these qualities foster a learning environment ideally suited for young children.
Sunday School is held from September through June on Sunday mornings from 9:45-10:45. This program is for children ages three years through fifth grade. The relating of basic Bible stories and life application discussions are the goal of this program as well as a study of contemporary topics in the upper grades. Special projects may also be a part of the weekly lessons. The Sunday School staff is made up of spiritually-gifted members of St. Paul with a commitment to the Lord, His church and young children. Team teaching is the norm in most classrooms. During July and August, formal Sunday School classes are suspended due to summertime schedules. We encourage families to set aside some time each week to engage in their own Christian education experience in the home.
