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 of 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.)

Please note: Our Godly Play Group is now on break through the summer. At our last April Zoom, we shared the Godly Play story of "The Good Shepherd and World Communion". This is considered a liturgical action story as it blends the Parable of the Good Shepherd into the child's understanding of the meaningful action of taking Communion with the Church Body. You may use this link to the Godly Play Foundation's telling of the story with your family as you prepare for the upcoming Good Shepherd Sunday. You can e-mail Christine to receive the accompanying activities we shared via your e-mail account.
