Children’s Education is back in person

Children’s Education is starting back in-person. For the months of November and December, children are invited to meet in Johnson Hall at 9:30am. As the weather gets cooler, we will be inside, giving us enough space to spread out, yet still be together. According to the diocesan guidelines we will be wearing masks, staying distanced and not having any food or drink. Children will hear our Godly Play story, then come into the sanctuary to join their families for communion. Know that your children and grandchildren are welcome and I look forward to seeing all of you again soon.

Godly Play

St Luke’s welcomes children starting at four years of age to participate in a Montessori approach to Christian education called “Godly Play.” Our trained teachers use open inquiry and a structured space to support children as they grow in their relationship to God. They tell stories in ways that children understand but don’t tell them what to think. Instead, teachers invite children to ‘wonder.’ Hands-on materials make the stories come alive. Children eventually learn the stories by hand and by heart as they play with the materials. Children are also invited to respond to the story with works of art to show how the story feels to them. Through Godly Play, children learn habits to help them talk about God and listen to God. We hope your children will come wonder and worship with us.

Pre-COVID Activities

Nursery – Currently on Hold

Children of all ages are welcome and present at all of our worship services. A crying baby does not present a problem (except sometimes to the parents!). Some families find that their youngest children are more comfortable in the nursery, though, staffed by our long time staff member, Miss Carol, and loving volunteers. The nursery is for infants through three year olds.
