Godly Play is coming to St. V!

Godly PlayGodly Play uses the principles of learning in the Montessori method—a hands-on, storytelling approach. As students enter the room a “greeter” welcomes them and invites them to join the others at the circle for the story. The “storyteller” shares a story from the Bible through actions, words and carefully chosen objects that bring the stories to the kids’ level. This is a program that uses storytelling and children’s natural sense of wonder to engage their minds about the stories of Scripture. They are invited to “play” with the stories and “work” on them through different creative means.

If you are interested, fill out a Godly Play registration form. For more information contact Anne Gibson at children@stvchurch.org.

Memorial for Larry Fenaroli

Larry, the late superintendent at St. V, had been ringing our tower bells since he was a teenager. In April he asked the Facilities Committee to fix the bells’ automated player. Automating the 14-bell set is a big expenditure, so we are starting with a modest three-bell peal. If you wish to contribute toward the bells’ repair as a memorial for Larry, please drop your check (marked ‘Larry Memorial’) in the collection basket or contact Laureen Brunelli at laureen@stvchurch.org  or 410-962-5078.
