GODLY PLAY 

 

Godly Play is open to children ages 4 - 5th grade, and is offered during our weekly worship service on the 2nd & 4th Sundays of the month (Sept - May). Drop-off for Godly Play begins at 9:50 AM in the Parish House and children return to their parents in church for Holy Communion. 

 

What is Godly Play? 

 

Children have an innate sense of the presence of God. The Godly Play approach helps them to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their spiritual experience though wonder and play. Based on Montessori principles and developed using a spiral curriculum, the Godly Play method serves children through early, middle and late childhood and beyond. 

 

ADULT FORMATION

 

Adult Formation is offered on many Sundays during the months of September - May in the Parish House immediately following refreshments. During this hour we dive deeper into God’s word and explore practical and effective ways in which we can grow and apply our faith. We explore a wide variety of topics during adult formation. All adults are welcome to attend, no matter where you are in your faith journey! 

 

EDUCATION FOR MINISTRY

 

Education for Ministry (EfM) is a distance learning experience from the School of Theology at the University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee. It’s a program of theological education based on small group study and practice. Over 80,000 participants from all over the world have discovered and nurtured their call to Christian service through this program.

 

We are delighted to offer you the opportunity to participate in EfM right here at Immanuel. Classes meet on Monday evenings here at the church during the months of September - May. Advanced registration is required! To learn more about EfM please email us mheath@immanueloc.org
