"I love teaching Godly Play.  The materials and the pacing and the atmosphere fill the children with wonder and I get caught up in it.  It has given me a whole new appreciation of the bible stories we teach and the curiosity and insight of the children"

 - Betsy Guthrie, Godly Play volunteer

Interested in helping with  our Godly Play program?

There are two roles - Greeter and teacher.

It is best to start as a Greeter.  Your job is to greet the children at the door of the Preschool Classroom and make sure they are ready for some contemplative time.  Then you let them in one by one where they gather on the floor around the teacher..  You sit for the lesson, helping with any child who needs any extra attention or needs to go to the bathroom and help the teacher when the lesson is over and the children do crafts.  

The next step is becoming a teacher. There is training and the existing teachers are happy to help you learn.  All the lessons are on Youtube to help you prepare.
