The birthstone for June birthdays is pearl, so it is appropriate that we do The Parable of the Great Pearl in June one week before the birthday of the church.
Sunday, June 9, the story of Pentecost will be told in Godly Play. Immediately following Godly Play, the children will go down the hall to a Pentecost Party . We will celebrate the birthday of the church through meaningful and fun activities.
For the remainder of June we will explore the liturgy of Baptism, the church year calendar and all those different kinds of crosses. Whilst none of these are Bible stories in the sense that they are not stories of people from the Bible, we do teach these concepts through a story form that is very much informed by scripture and Christian history.
