First Congregational Church of Camden introduces Montessori based curriculum
Camden, Maine - The First
Congregational Church has recently implemented a new Montessori based
curriculum called Godly Play. Godly Play is rooted in story, wonder,
liturgy, discovery and joy as children seek and find the mystery of God's
presence. It is an imaginative approach for working with children, an
approach that supports, challenges, nourishes, and guides their spiritual
quest. The program is led up by Elizabeth Lally, the Christian Education
Director. For more information, please contact her at Elizabeth@camdenucc.org or read more about
Godly Play at Godlyplayfoundation.org.
Sunday school for
pre-K through ninth grade students runs from 8:45 to 9:30 am, just prior to the
worship service. Children are invited to join their families in the sanctuary
for the service, or they can participate in supervised classroom activities as
an alternative. Nursery care for is also provided during worship. Founded in 1805, The First Congregational Church
of Camden is an Open and Affirming Congregation of the United Church of Christ.
Worship service is held every Sunday morning at 9:30 am, and all are welcome.
The congregation offers a number of outreach programs, including Heavenly
Threads Thrift Shop, the Shields Mission, Soup’s On!, the Friends of Music
concert series, among others.
