Vestry Notes



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.
