Sunday School | Sundays at 11:15AM
Sunday school is brimming with young faces learning our faith stories.
Children in pre-school to 3rd grade participate in Godly Play, a Montessori-based method of Christian education and spiritual formation. Through storytelling, silence, “I wonder” questions and art response, children encounter the language of the church– parable, sacred story, silence, and liturgical action– and become more fully aware of the mystery of God’s presence in their lives.
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 Montessori foundation with 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.
Fourth and fifth-grades will spend Sunday mornings engaged in Story, Outreach, Wonder, Arts, and Theology (SOWhAT). Developed by Trinity parishioner and longtime Christian formation director Kim McPherson, SOWhAT takes a deep dive into the sacred stories of our tradition through the written word, the arts, group sharing, and service.
Sixth and seventh graders will spend Sunday mornings in fellowship and service, attempting to answer fundamental questions: What do we do in church and how does it relate to our lives at home and in school? How can I be a good friend, responsive family member, and person of faith in a culture that’s dominated by conflicting messages? How can we stop and reflect in times of stress to find our center? This class, rooted in scripture and tradition, will seek together to build community.
The Trinity Nursery is available on Sundays and occasionally during programmed events.
On Sundays, nursery is available for children under three years old from 9:45 -12:00 noon.
