Daphne Vernon, Director of Spiritual Formation at the Church of the Incarnation in Santa Rosa, explains what Godly Play has meant in her ministry, and why she is hopeful that some of you will join her in this event, “Starting a Godly Play program in your parish can be a very unifying experience for everyone involved. Everyone can be involved in the faith formation of our children from helping to make or pay for stories, setting up the class room, being a doorkeeper/greeter or being a story teller. All of these contributions make a difference in our children’s lives as well as deepening our own faith formation. Participating in the three day training is a great opportunity to deepen your knowledge and confidence in providing a Godly play program in your own parish. It’s a great opportunity to get to meet Godly Play teachers from other churches that can become a support network in your future Godly Play endeavors.”

Registration for the Godly Play part of this event (offered by the Godly Play Foundation) will be available soon. If you’d like to apply for a scholarship for the training, or a grant to begin a new children’s ministry, please indicate your interest using this short form, or contact me at anne@norcalepiscopal.org or call 916-442-6918 ext. 215.
