Good Shepherd’s Sunday morning children’s programming meets from 10:10-10:50 on Sundays during the school year.
Little Lambs, Preschool, & Pre-Kindergarten– (starting at age 2 as of August 1st) Classes enjoy a play based curriculum aimed at introducing our youngest children to Jesus, God’s Love, and bible stories.
K-5th Grades- meet on the lower level. In their classrooms, kids will explore the bible in a variety of ways, all aimed at introducing building blocks of faith, the love of God, and ways to embody being a follower of Christ in the world.
Through these age-level milestone events, we partner with parents to learn, grow and then to CELEBRATE these events. Following is a listing of the Faith Milestone Events:
LITTLE LAMBS BIBLE FAITH MILESTONE – As our youngest learners begin Sunday School, they receive a Children’s Bible from their parents as a reminder of the baptismal promise of “putting God’s word into the hands of their children.”
FIRST COMMUNION FAITH MILESTONE – Children ready to receive their first communion, or children ready to learn more about this sacrament, will meet for three weeks along with a parent. Each week provides opportunities to dig into bible stories, the history of this sacrament, and share stories. First Communion is celebrated in worship following the three week series. A reception will be thrown to mark this joyous occasion.
SECOND GRADE SMALL CATECHISM / LORD’S PRAYER FAITH MILESTONE – Our second graders and their parents are introduced to the Small Cat (children’s version of Luther’s Small Catechism) with a special emphasis on The Lord’s Prayer.
THIRD GRADE “BOOKS OF THE BIBLE” FAITH MILESTONE – Our third grade families spend three Sunday morning classes walking through the bible, learning a key verse from each book.
