Godly Play (preschool - 3rd grade)
A Montessori-based way of Christian formation in which we play with the language of God and God's people - sacred stories, parables, liturgical action, and even silence. Through this powerful language, through our own wondering together, and through the community of children gathered to play, we receive the deepest invitation of all - an invitation to come play with God.

Church School: Spark Activate Faith (grades 4 & 5)
This year we have a new curriculum for our 4th/5th grade class. Over a two year cycle children will be working with 80 key Old and New Testament stories. They will begin to understand the structure of the Bible and be able to navigate through it to find the stories they already know or to find the new ones that they want to explore. They will begin to interpret the stories and discover ways to apply the text to their own lives. The curriculum affirms that children have a variety of learning styles, so there will be a variety of activities to engage their imaginations including drama, art, games and discussion of the issues important to the community of children.
Rite 13 (grade 6-7)
The Rite 13 curriculum is designed to assist young people as they take the first steps of passage from their families and into their own lives.
