Wondering How We’ll Do it Again! …. Spirit Play” Training for Volunteers Saturday, September 11

Spirit Play soon has completed its first year as our new program for those in grades 1-5!
Its  flexible structure invites volunteer support at all levels–tell a story and lead a “Wondering” discussion, get the room set up, welcome kids as they arrive, help kids during their free-choice “Work” time, provide snacks or music for a “Feast Day,” use your craft skills at home to make a story set, make a gift of financial support for Religious Education, you name it!  Consider yourself invited!
Spirit Play takes place on Sundays during the 9:30 Religious Education hour.  Our last Sunday for spring was May 16.  It starts up again September

Using classic stories, the arts and shared rituals, Spirit Play builds community and promotes spiritual reflection and play.
Regular story sessions include the roles of Story Teller (lead teacher) and Door Keeper (an adult assistant). While on most Sundays a Story Teller is in charge and we have a story and a discussion based on “Wondering questions,” on Feast Days we have special guests, conversation and food.
Consider learning how you can be involved.   May 22 we’ll have a Saturday morning  training for new and returning volunteers.  This will equip you either to Story Tellers and Door Keepers — or to be of support to Spirit Play in ways that you choose.   If you have questions, please contact RE Chair Jeannine Newcum or me.  We’d love to help you decide if this would be a good fit for you.  For more information see
