Guiding RAY at Home Resources
Guiding RAY in a BAG! – Everything you need for the next few weeks of lessons is in the bag. The bag includes: all of the age-appropriate materials you need for your arts & crafts, and some added bonuses! Register here to receive a bag of Guiding RAY at Home materials this fall! You will receive crafts, games, Bible stories, and other activities to explore with your family at your own pace. These bags are designed to be inter-generational (for children, youth, and adults). There is no charge for these resources.
At Saint Mary’s, we are committed to the spiritual formation of our children, and our Guiding RAY program provides fun, interactive and spiritual instruction for Pre K-8th grade. Our Guiding RAY at Home Bags are designed to both appeal to and offer our children and families an opportunity to learn key bible stories and to develop their relationship with God.
• Watch a Godly Play story! – The Godly Play Foundation has a YouTube channel with numerous stories to watch being presented by a myriad of Godly Play trainers.
• Do Faith at Home – Faith at Home is a weekly lectionary devotional/Bible study for families provided by Forma and Forward Movement. Its mission: Our faith is not just something we check in with on Sundays; our faith is how we live lives of meaning and purpose every day of the week, if we will learn to notice and respond to how God is moving.
• Tucked In: Bedtime Stories & Prayers – Tucked In: Bedtime Stories and Prayers with Episcopalians and others is a Facebook Group that does live streaming of different folks reading a picture book with faith themes. Each Wednesday evening (7:00pm ET) and occasional Mondays, you can join to hear Bible and other stories and short bedtime prayers.
