Welcome to the first post of our Ames UCC Godly Play blog. You can visit here for periodic reflections, stories, pictures, and information about what goes on in our Godly Play room each week. Pr. Hannah Hannover and I are excited to have the opportunity to share with you a little bit about what your wonderful children share with us each week during our Sunday School hour.
In this blog, we will tell you a little about the story that was told each week (and when possible link to a video of a Godly Play teacher demonstrating that story), share with you the wondering questions we all pondered after experiencing the story, possibly include some pictures of your children creatively responding to the story, and tell you some of our own reflections about the experience of sharing the story with your children.
Our first story will be told on Sunday, September 20. We are looking forward to launching the new school year in our newly renovated classroom. Check back here to hear and see how it went. In the meantime, we invite you to look over our new website and please share any concerns, questions, and other feedback that might be helpful.
