Children are very important to us at Good Shepherd (as they should be). A great deal o prayer, preparation, and effort go into making the ministries we have for our children one which leads them to a deeper understanding of Jesus and His love for them.
Here are some of the areas that our church pours our heart into our children:
Provided during Worship Services, Sunday School, and special events. Children from birth to 3 years old are cared for by volunteers from our congregation. All volunteers have completed a screening and background check so they may work in the very important ministry.
For children age 3 through 1st grade. The children worship with their parents until the sermon begins and are then excused to attend their own service that is geared for their age group.
For children of all ages following the worship service there is a short time for fellowship and then the children are dismissed to their appropriate age group's room for a time with their Sunday School teachers.
Children's Bell Choir
The Children's Bell Choir performs once a month plus a few special services as well. Children who are in the Kindergarten through 5th grade are encouraged to participate and glorify God.
