All Saints offers new youth program

All Saints Episcopal Church in Southern Shores has announced that it is inviting children age 4 through fifth grade to a Sunday morning faith experience called Godly Play. Based on the Montessori method, Godly Play uses careful telling of scripture stories, engaging story figures and a variety of creative activities to encourage children to seek and find their own answers to their faith questions.

A unique approach to religious education, the program invites children to wonder about themselves, about God and about the world in a way that is playful and meaningful to them.

According to All Saints Rector Cindy Simpson, “Godly Play respects the innate spirituality of children and encourages them to use their curiosity and imagination to experience the mystery and joy of God.”

Class begins Sunday, September 12 at 10:30 a.m. and children will gather for these stories with their teachers for approximately 45 to 50 minutes while parents are in their own worship meeting weekly through the month of December.

In keeping with current CDC and local health guidelines, everyone will wear a mask and teachers will practice healthy distancing in the classroom.

“We invite everyone to come see this wonderful way of nurturing children’s faith,” said Simpson.

All Saints Episcopal Church is also known as the host for an After Dark program for adults, generally for about five weeks in January and February with net proceeds from the courses given back to the community to support local service organizations on the Outer Banks.

All Saints Episcopal Church welcomes everyone. It is located at 40 Pintail Trail in Southern Shores, behind the new Southern Shores fire station.
