Godly Play is the school-year curriculum for children from Kindergarten through 2nd grade that engage the whole child in creativity and community fellowship. It is a time of playful worship that invites relationship with God.
At the heart of a Godly Play session is the telling of the story, experienced in the contexts of scripture and the church calendar. The storyteller uses simple, beautiful materials to illustrate the story and to engage imagination. Both the structure of Godly Play and the classrooms themselves offer children a safe space to explore, wonder, and worship. Children have the opportunity to relate Biblical stories to their own experience and to respond personally and creatively to God.
During the summer months, Godly Play is on hiatus as the Holy Cross family comes together across generations to worship as the family of God.
Epic Waves, our new program for grades 6-12 is about to make a big splash this fall! Coral and Jonathan have teamed up to create an exciting program that will mentor youth through an organic curriculum. We’ll tackle issues that are current and relevant to our group and tie biblical themes to them. Our primary goal is to create leaders within our community and empower them to be role models for others. They will be instrumental in helping to plan social events, fundraisers, bible studies, and service projects. Please encourage the Jr. High/High School students in your life to attend. This will be a powerful experience they won’t want to miss!
