Godly Play 2012
May 4 – May 6, 2012
Fri 7:00 PM – Sun 1:00 PM
Experience Godly Play in a collegial, non-judgmental and prayerful atmosphere. Learn how to create a Godly Play environment, build your understanding of the spirituality of children, improve skills, clarify Godly Play’s foundations, and leave spiritually refreshed.
Godly Play is a method of faith formation primarily for children ages 3-12. Bodily play allows children to experience and incorporate religious language, parable, sacred story, and liturgical action to help them become more fully aware of the mystery of God’s presence around them and in their lives. The stories highlight the seasons of the church year and each session integrates components of a worship celebration.
You must be present for the entire training.
Program Cost: $385 ($230 + $155 meals/accommodations)
