Education & Fellowship
The community at Good Shepherd Presbyterian has a lot to offer! All ages are invited to engage and connect with one another by participating in our education or fellowship opportunities. Good Shepherd has active programs for children, youth and adults. We have Sunday morning programming, evening and mid-week opportunities, and seasonal events. No matter your age or life circumstances, we hope that you will find something to engage you at Good Shepherd. Please contact the church office for more information on the following programs:
Sunday school is each Sunday at 8:30 am for adults and 8:45 a.m. for children ages pre-school through high school (September thru May). A nursery is available all morning to age 5. We offer a preschool class for ages 3-5, classes for K through grade 5, and a youth class for middle and high school students.
We use the "We Believe" curriculum, which is lectionary-based, in children's Sunday school, . (Based on the Bible passages used by the church each week.) The preschool class uses the "Wee Believe" curriculum, which dovetails with the other classes.
Jr. Church for elementary and preschool aged children during worship, excluding Communion Sundays (first Sunday of the month, and certain Feast Days). Just as in the the Gospel of Mark, we believe the children should be gathered unto Jesus on these days where we remember Christ with bread and the cup.
Youth Group for middle and high school students meets every 1st and 3rd Sunday at 6:30 p.m. September through December. Join them for fun activities and interesting studies.
Youth Mission Trip: The 2014 Mission trip site has not been selected. We are considering many options, and youth attending youth group will be able to have lots of input in the decision.
Inter-generational events are also scheduled throughout the year. Look for them under the Coming Events tab!
