Vestry Notes

on First Sunday of the month: July 1, August 5, and September 2.

Godly Play in Action

St. Timothy’s uses a Montessori-style program for children’s Sunday morning education.  The classroom is a calm, welcoming place, where children are surrounded by visible and tactile representations of key stories of our faith.  As intended by Dr. Jerome Berryman who wrote the curriculum, walking into the classroom is like “walking into the Bible.”  Children are welcome in the classroom or in church for the worship service, and all children are in church for communion.  On the first Sunday of each month the children are in church for a Children’s sermon presented by Rector Rebecca Ferrell Nickel.  Our Godly Play Director is Alli Betts, doctoral candidate at the University of Indianapolis, and our teachers are specifically trained for this style of education. 

You are welcome to bring your child, or to stay and observe or participate in the program. 


Mizraim Lorenzo-Aguilar, Godly Play Director
Hello! (April 23, 2018)
     My name is Mizraim Lorenzo-Aguilar or Miz for short.
I am 23 years old and live in Greenwood, IN. I am originally
from a small town in Veracruz, Mexico. I moved to
Indianapolis, IN when I was 10 years old
and have been in the states since. I attended
Ben Davis University High School in Indianapolis
and the University of Indianapolis, where I studied
Secondary Education and Spanish with a minor in Mathematics.

     I am currently teaching Spanish at Whiteland Community
High School. I'm excited to become the new
Godly Play Director and I’m even more excited
to work with the children, youth, and parents/guardians of Saint Timothy’s.
