When the pandemic or summer travels make getting to church a challenge, here are some Pajama Vespers and Godly Play™ resources for parents and children to share at home and grow in faith together. 

 

Pajama Vespers

Pajama Vespers are warm & happy early evening gatherings that include a family activity, a story, a song, and candlelight prayers.

 

Prior to the pandemic, Pajama Vespers services took place in the sanctuary on Sunday evenings when families came (sometimes in pajamas!) to share stories and prayers before getting ready for bed.

 

When COVID arrived, this service became virtual. Pastor Nancy offers a new YouTube video each week now, complete with songs, prayers and bedtime stories. Be sure to check Trinity’s homepage each week to find the new Pajama Vespers video for that week.

 

To view a perennial favorite Pajama Vespers video, you can click the YouTube image above to open the video of Pastor Nancy reading us the story “When God Made YOU” by Matthew Paul Turner and illustrated by David Catrow.

Godly Play™ 

 

Godly Play is a curriculum of spiritual practice exploring the mystery of God’s presence in our lives.

 

Godly Play stories make meaning through story, wonder, and play, and nurture spiritual lives by honoring the centrality, competency, and capacity of children.
