Our Story Schedule

Here is the tentative story schedule for Godly Play at First Baptist Greenville. We're sharing this for teachers, not so that families can prepare for upcoming lessons. We prefer that the children enter the classroom curious about what we might learn that day, not expecting a certain lesson.  We want to give the Holy Spirit room to nudge the children and teachers as they explore the story, and it is harder for that to happen if the children come in already bringing with them a preconceived idea of what the story is about and what it might mean.
