Godly Play

Leader: Christine Quintana

The Godly Play Approach helps children to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their spiritual experience through wonder and play. Godly Play is based on Montessori principles and was developed using a spiral curriculum. To join our circle, children must be 5 to 12 years old and be registered using the FBC enrollment form. We explore the Bible and some our Church practices through story, using Montessori materials, journaling and engaging in art experiences to express our spiritual journey. We meet on the third Friday evening of the month from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. during the school year. Godly Play is currently on summer break. Contact Christine Quintana at 563-583-4623 for more information. (Group size will be limited to no more than 15 children with two adults.)

Please note: In the event that COVID-19 continues to prevent a safety hazard, Godly Play will meet via Zoom when our fall schedule resumes.

All children's materials are sanitized to prevent the transmission of viruses. We wash hands upon arrival to church programming, before and after noseblowing and after toileting. All surfaces are maintained and disinfected as well to promote health and safety. Children who are sick and/or running a fever are not permitted to participate in programming. During outbreaks of flu and coronavirus we will also be refraining from offering snacks during children's programming. 

Times like these can often be frightening for children as well as adults. One of the most comforting Godly Play parables is the "Parable of the Good Shepherd". Use this link to watch a wonderful telling of the parable by the Godly Play Foundation.
