Learn with us...
Good Shepherd Episcopal Church offers abundant opportunities for Christian Education and spiritual development for children and adults.
For Children ...
We are comitted to providing Christian formation for children in the parish, through engaging them in conversation and fun activities related to Bible stories that follow the lectionary. There are three different Sunday School classes offered, usually divided into these age-based groups: Pre-Kindergarten through first grade; grades 2 and 3; and grades 4 and 5. We use "Living the Good News" as the curriculum.
Teacher volunteers sign up to teach one age group for a semester at a time. Teacher books are provided for lesson and activity planning. There are also Booklets and take-home sheets for the children. Activities include stories, art projects, skits, songs, and prayer.
In keeping with the policy of our diocese, all those who work with youth or children must complete the Safeguarding God's Children workshops.
When: Sunday, 10:30 am
At 10:15 on Sunday, our children and their parents gather with the Rector for a time of song, prayer, and story prior to the start of Sunday School.
When: Sunday, 10:15 to 10:30 am
For Youth ...
We provide a program for Christian formation for our young people ages 11 to 18 that seeks to give them a safe place to learn and grow in their faith, opportunities to worship and serve together and time when they join with other youth in the diocese for activities such as the Cathedral Lockin with 435 youth in attendance!
When: Get togethers, Activities, and Events are announced throughout the year in the Sunday bulletin and the eVoice newsletter.
