Sunday School

Faith Formation in Pandemic Times

During this time in our world where we cannot come together in person to worship or participate in faith formation activities at church, I am reminded that the most influential people in developing faith in our children are their parents. Despite the many things that pull our children in so many directions, it is the words and actions of parents that run the deepest in our children's minds and hearts.

As the world around us is chaotic and crazy, our children will be looking to their parents to help make sense of it all. What a wonderful opportunity to reiterate the message of God's love and grace that surpasses everything. And to share the message that God walks with us through suffering and uncertainty.

At-Home Sunday School: "Fruit of the Month Club"

During the 2020-2021 year, we are doing at-home Sunday School through our Fruit of the Month Club!

Each month we will be talking about a different Fruit of the Spirit as described in Galatians 5:22-23: 
"The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against such things."

Families receive a bag with ideas for fun activities, treats, outings, projects, and more! We supply all of the materials for at least one of the projects. If you would like to be included in our Fruit of the Month Club, 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.
