  1. Articles : Announcing: NEW Godly Play Leadership Training Event

    I Wonder… What is Godly Play?

    Westminster’s young children are blessed to worship together in a sacred space on Sunday mornings during the 11:00am worship service when we are in-person. In a worship-centered yet child-friendly setting, they explore the mystery of God’s presence in their lives. Godly Play helps children, and the adults that accompany them, to listen for God, and to make authentic, creative responses to God’s call in their lives.

    Would you like to learn more about Godly Play?  

     While we don’t know what our life as a community of faith will look like when we regather, we do know that we want to continue this foundational approach to worship and formation with our children. To get ready for whatever the Spirit has in store, we are offering a Godly Play Leadership Training Event here at Westminster Presbyterian Church on Friday June 4, 6:00-9:00pm, and Saturday June 5, 9:00am-3:00pm.  This gathering will be led by Marcia Floding, a Young Children & Worship Trainer for the Reformed Church in America, and currently the Director of Children’s Ministry at Trinity Avenue Presbyterian.  Being a Godly Play leader can be a life-changing experience, so please consider joining us!  To learn more or sign-up, please contact Marietta Wynands, Director of Christian Education.
