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 break from meeting in person. Contact Christine Quintana at 563-583-4623 for more information. (Group size will be limited to no more than 15 children with two adults.)

(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.)

Please note: As COVID-19 continues to prevent a safety hazard, we are currently not meeting in person. Godly Play will be meeting via zoom for the months of January and February. A determination will be made in February whether to meet with safety precautions or to continue to meet via zoom.

This month we will be sharing the Story of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. via zoom on January 18, 2021 at 10:30 a.m. If you would like to join us, please register with Christine Quintana at hcquintana@msn.com to receive the link. If you are unable to join us that morning, feel free to use the following YouTube link and wonder about being a peacemaker on your own.
