Godly Play Sunday School
Godly Play meets Sundays 9:45-10:45, August-May.
CURRENT COVID PRECAUTIONS: During times of high community spread, everyone 2 years old and up must wear a mask while in any of the buildings. During medium spread, masks are recommended. On nice days, children may go the playground.
The Godly Play Sunday school program at the Episcopal Parish of St. Mark & St. Paul on the Mountain is designed for children at least 3 years old through 4th or 5th grade. We also offer a Tuesday morning program for children not yet in school.
Godly Play helps children 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.
To learn more about the theory and method of Godly Play, please visit the Godly Play Foundation.
May the Circle Be Unbroken
Although gathering is not as easy as it once was, our circle is unbroken. Please let us know how we can help your family connect.

Vacation Bible School
In early summer, the parish holds an intergenerational learning series called VB-Us. Our take on Vacation Bible School, VB-Us brings the community together for a good meal, singing, and chatauqua-style learning centered around lectures, crafts, skits, and stories.
Throughout the seasons of the church year, our children participate in many wonderful traditions and special events: the annual church picnic, a church tour, games and dancing at Oktoberfest, coloring crosses for All Saints, making Advent wreaths, the Christmas pageant, Bishop Otey Sunday, Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper, the annual Easter Egg hunt and party, a Pentecost celebration, and Summer Eucharist featuring a sermon geared to younger worshipers.
