Time Away to Rest and Pray

We've done so much in this past year! As parents we've had to put on our hats of educator, therapist, cheerleader, and probably playmate much more often than during "regular time." As a church, we've had to rethink the way we do every ministry at a time when we were looking for things to get back to "normal" with the return to our building post-fire. Add to that the stress of political upheaval, racial injustice, and coping with an ever-changing pandemic, and I'm guessing we're all pretty tired. Read more »

Splash! Faith Formation from birth to age 3

This ministry is aimed at our youngest members, and helps to keep the congregational promise to support the baptized and their families in their spiritual journey. We do this by helping parents in their role of bringing up children of God.

Materials are sent out on a regular basis, with ideas for faith-filled play, worship, and more. For more information, or to sign your family for Splash mailings, contact Deaconess Debbie at christianed@goodshepherdlc.org.

 

 

Good Shepherd PrayGround

Good Shepherd values our children! When we return to worshiping in person, we will once again have a Prayground space front and center.

What's a "Prayground"? It's a dedicated space in our church where little ones (suggested for ages 5 and under) can play, color and explore. It's a space where they can see and hear the pastor and worship leaders clearly. And it's a place where the congregation can celebrate the joy that your child--wiggles, noises and all--brings to our congregation!

In addition to the Prayground, Good Shepherd offers activity bags for children to use during the services, as well as a staffed nursery.
