News, Connections and Photos from the life of the faith community at CAPC Oakland
We met this past Sunday, to talk about our needs, hopes and dreams for our Children and Youth, in particular in our Godly Play Christian Education program as we look to re-start in person this Summer/Fall.
Beth Beatty led the conversation and recorded the overall ideas and desires.
SUMMARY OF GODLY PLAY PLANNING MEETING
July 11, 2021
We had a rich meeting on Sunday with excellent input from Pastor Monte, Dr.Dave Kittams, Cameron Beatty, Cheryl Winkley, student William Markley, Linda Davis, Bill and Beth Beatty present. Several of you also gave me feedback outside the meeting. Thank you!
I committed to report to you some of what we decided and proposed at this time. After a lot of conversation, sharing and collaborating, the following is what we decided to do for now:
We will have some new Story Tellers, and they, especially, will need the assistance of the older children who know how the GP class time is structured and unfolds.
Many thanks to our continuing Task Force: STORYTELLERS: Dr. Dave Kittams, Cameron Beatty, Bill Beatty, Beth Beatty.
Jeanne Haynes who joined GP during Zoom, has volunteered to be a GP Story Teller. She is a professional storyteller. She has both taught storytelling and told stories for many years! A great addition to our team!
Linda Davis has volunteered to continue managing our Activities Cupboard, keeping it stocked with all kinds of interesting supplies and materials. Many Thanks.
Fredora Darmstadt has volunteered to be either a Door Keeper or a Story Teller! She is already a trained GP pro who has been with our program since we began!
We continue to recruit Story Tellers and Door Keepers and Assistants.
